This is caused by the wrong cord, having the coach parked with one side towards the sun and too much tension. This has caused the track to warp.
We also have a fix for this problem. No need to buy a new shade.
Brackets are white and also have a tab behind the shade. Use your thumb as the brackets are plastic and will break if to much pressure is used.
If screws are used they may run through the front of the head rail. This style tends to have wooden head rails. Normally there are 3 screws.
The day / night shade itself is a fantastic design, when set up properly the shade preforms perfectly.
I spent 17+ years fixing shades, most manufactures use "string". String has a cotton jacket and frays over time. Especially when the shade is to tight.
We manufacture our own cord that is made to last and is the perfect size. Some people are confused about the size. 0.9 mm cord is normally used in cellular shades, 1.2 mm is normally used in mini blinds and 1.4 mm is normally used in wood blinds. We manufacture the perfect size cord for the right application, cord that is not just purchased from a window covering dealer or manufacturer.
Black or brown plastic brackets will have a thicker tab and only require use of your thumb to flex the bracket. Remember to be careful, the plastic can break.
There are several way a valance is attached the the wall of the coach. "L" brackets are common and are located on the inside of the valance. one screw into the valance and one into the wall. Remove the screw that goes into the valance. This should be a small screw.
If no brackets are visible, there will be screws under the head rail of the shade into the cabinet above ( this will require the shade to be removed). There will be one screw on each side at the bottom of the valance on a 45 degree angle (like toe nailing). It may be hidden in the folds of the fabric.

I always suggest replacing all bushings and cord. Replacing just the broken cord will cause you to repair the shade again. Once the shade is repaired using our methods and parts you should never have to repair the shade again.
The 2 cord shade is the best to learn on. The 4 cord shade may be considered more difficult however this is only because of the size. The basic principles are the same.
2 cord shade repair is the same method as replacing a shoe lace in a tennis shoe.
This is the effect of using the wrong cord. The bushing has worn on the side and the string has now ripped through the shade. The Cd we provide shows you how to fix this problem. No need to buy a new shade.
There are 3 reasons why the shade may be crooked.
1. The shade is not square, cord retainers and head rial are offset.
2. Missing end caps on the middle rail.
3. The center springs may have shifted during installation. Masking tape during repair will solve this problem.
