Tonneau Cover Folding DIY

Does anybody have instructions for refolding tonneau cover? Mine was delivered top down and I don't want to screw up the cover by folding it wrong. Also anyone have DIY on wind screen?

I'll take pics later if no one else steps in, but one key is to make sure you straighten out the front lip/flap (the piece that sticks behind the seat). This piece has to be folded out for the cover to be able to fold together.

It folds very easy once you fold the first flap in..I hold the long skinny parts and fold in-ward toward the middle. You fold the first flap in then fold again..then fold the other side in toward middle. It should all fold together flat enought to fit in its case.
I fold the one in my right hand first. I hope this helps.

Thanks. I didn't have instructions in my bag and was afraid to make the backward fold. I wonder how many times you get to fold this thing before it splits? Let's hope we never find out.

I was told by my dealer that GM was looking at a redesign of this worthless cover. This is absolutely the worst part of an otherwise very nice car.

Tru Dat - Can't stand it! I feel stupid when I put it on in Public - takes too long and it is too bulky, especially when it is windy. Otherwise - LOVE MY CAR!!!

I lost mine while driving back from the beach. Only doing about 65 look back and the cover flew off and under a mini-van. It was not "snapped" in because the dealer hadn't installed the buttons yet. It's going in Thursday for strips (cyber gray rally stripes on a black car)..I will convice the salesman that it's his fault..and HE told me it would be okay until I get it back in for the stripes..ugh.

Have you looked at SUX2BU'S fix for the rub problem? I don't have my '12 vert yet, but I printed off the instructions & pictures and took them to the service manager at my dealers, he was thrilled to find a fix! I told him as soon as my vert hits the lot, he has my permission to fix the problem before it happens. As for the dealer not helping you, go over his head he is a jerk. Call the 800 number for customer help, and raise the dead! They know about the problem, and are replacing top left and right. In fact there are people on waiting lists to get new tops, that is how many they are replacing. check out some of the other forums, you are not alone. good luck!

2012 have a new (but still cheap) fix on the tonneau cover pins. instead of clips, its a elestic loop strap that fits over a bolt. works and pretty easy to use. just wondering how long the elastic will last.

Well, if you had the 4th gen cover like I do you'd think this one is much better!
