    I can't find anything about how to remove it but I think you maybe could pull your headliner down to see if the screws need tightening. If that isn't how they are mounted, at least I gave you a free bump for someone else to help...

    You have a new truck- have the dealer fix it for you. Unless you really want to remove it? The shade will get used by passengers, or if you want to use a sun shade - people talk about mods, but this is the best thing you can do for your vehicles. Keep a shade in all the time, this protects the interior more then anything else. :cool:

    ok the way to remove this plastic part is to twist it counterclockwise 1/4 turn and it comes right out. i think i just need a new one. this one looks like it wasnt installed by pushing it up high enough and it sheared some plastic off the base. warranty item for when i get something more important like the rear spring tsb at my first service visit. thanks for the replys guys
