In order for you Zippee Shade to fit properly

you must follow these instructions

Step 1:

Once you have removed your ZippeeShade™ from it’s carrying case, you may notice that the UV Resistant fabric is wrinkled.

Step 2:

We recommend that you take a standard steam iron, and set it to the lowest setting yet allowing the steam to work.  First iron the ZippeeShade™ on the silver side, so that you will not damage the printed logo.  Once you have smoothed out all the wrinkles, you can turn the ZippeeShade™ over, and begin ironing the black side.

Step 3:

Be sure to iron the loose fabric that surrounds the frame.

Step 4:

To install the ZippeeShade™, slide back the mesh screen covering you sunroof, and slide the (SOLID SIDE) of ZippeeShade between the glass and mesh screen.  For the rear sunroof: the loose fabric should be facing towards the rear hatchback.  For the front sunroof: the loose fabric should be facing towards the front windshield.

Step 5:

Take the suction cups and depress them against the glass above.

Step 6:

Take the loose fabric and tuck it into the edges of sunroof trim ring.  It’s that easy.

    Will the shade fit the new 2016 S Clubman? I don’t see a reference to the F54 model on the website.

      Yes our current clubman model will fit the F54, we just haven’t updated our website yet. We have them in stock and ready to ship. If you place your order via our website, I can get one out first thing tomorrow. I hope this helps.

    I have a 2010 mini with sunroof & screen. The screen needs replacing & I see them advertised for $160. Is yours the same as these. I can’t see any pix to be sure

    Can you drive with your front sunroof open without having to remove the zippee shield?
