Dutchstar Driver's window shades

I am in the process of installing a residential refrigerator. I need to remove the drivers's window on my DSDP. The day and privacy shades need to come off to remove the frame screws from the window. How do you do this as I don't see any accessible screws?

They are usually pressed into clips. There is a small release tab on one side.

Bill.....There are two metal clips that are screwed to the top of the wooden valance. They look like the clip in the photo below (1st item is the clip). On the right side of the clip, you can see a half round edge. When you look up at your shades, just past the roller, you'll see the half round edge of that clip. Take a small dowel and push upward, it will release the shade.

Thanks Don
I had a difficult time removing the old refrigerator. I had to remove the front flange which is glued in place. The window is a better option. The television is just to close to the dashboard. The rest of the project is going well.
