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!!!
