Hi, we have an ancient (1993) Renault Recro which we've had for about a year and finally getting round to replacing the curtains. What a fiasco! Took ages sourcing the curtain track and gliders and am at last sewing them and trying to swap the gliders from the old to new curtains. Is there a knack to this? It seems nigh on impossible to do - just taken 20 minutes to do one plus several broken nails and much swearing - help please! Am I being thick or has this been designed as a massive joke?

Are they like these one piece things?

When I took our curtains down to wash them, I nearly gave up with how fiddly they are to get back on the track. It doesn’t help that you cannot put all the hooks in the curtain first otherwise some fall out and get lost while you are trying to get other sliders in the track.
Cannot help with any tricks, except to get extra pair of hands to hold the curtain while you get the sliders in.
