Windsheld drapes removal

Trying to figure out how to remove the windshield drapes for dry cleaning.
The track on each end of the drapes is closed and don't know how to get the slide out of the track??

To remove mine I gently pry each of the nylon track clips or sliders from the track. Slow job, but I couldn't figure a better way. We've done it twice, and this spring we'll do it again. We wash the windshield drapes in the bathtub and dry them outside on a long clean fence.

I hear ya. We tried to figure out a good way to remove them too but we decided to have a steam cleaning company come out and steam clean them in place along with our little bit of carpet, window valances and booth cushions.

On ours (a good bit older and a different brand than yours) there is a screw at each the end of the track that is removed to allow the hangers to slide out.

You can also check for a small wide spot in the track, either at each end or near the center, where you would twist each hanger through that wide spot to remove it from the track.

I remember on my 2007 Winnebago also removing screw(s). The track hung down a bit and the curtains came right off. Sorry I don't have better info but it's been a few years.

On my 2004 Itasca, I had to drill out a rivet at the end of the track. That allowed a small aluminum "block" to be removed, and then the drapes come out easily. After washing, reinstall drapes, then reinstall the block with a pop rivet gun (a screw would also work).
