Roof Light Blind Issue Empty Roof Light Blind Issue

I have a slight issue with the blind/fly screen in my Corinium Duo, when the blind is drawn at some point it halve opens - see picture - the blind clips into the fly screen and clicks into place, and then it moves, can somebody point me in the right direction for adjustment etc.

See this previous thread for the same problem:

PS Just noticed yours is a new van so shouldn't really be having this problem already.  When you slide fully to either end, it should click into place and be held there - if it's gone sloppy already then I'd suggest getting it looked at under warranty.

Thanks for your reply, its not gone sloppy its still taught, the problem I believe is there is too much tension on the blind and it just creeps back.

I've seen the other post and mine is exactly the same issue, I've had a few issues with this van none of which should have been present given the cost, the main one that really was crap was the mounting of the Harmony screen which I have now sorted properly - AS can buy my design if they wish, it won't push through yet is easily removeable if required.

my blind  does that in my Neuvo. 

On a related matter I experience quite a lot of wind noise from this skylight when driving at 55MPH plus. Dealer has told me that it is a feature of this type of skylight. Wondering whether you encounter the same issue

Wind noise is because it does not have a seal strip on the full perimeter, requirement of providing regulatory minimum ventilation. you can buy the full seal and replace to reduce wind noise.

Noise is associated with the mandatory ventilation....according to the Installation/User instructions with a Seitz Mini Heki Rooflight that I have just obtained. They offer models with or without the ventilation and recommend the latter for mounting near the cab area. If you are stuck with a ventilated rooflight, they recommend fitting a deflector upwind of the rooflight.

I had the same problem with the Heki over our lounge. Same cure - add the other three sides of seal strip.  Bonus was that the strip I bought has a brushed surface so doesn't stick to the Heki.

I have the same issue …. In mine it’s the fly screen which is stronger than the blind and plus it back to just under the half way position.
