    Yes, I did a dumb thing.. I put my sunglasses in the compartment folded it up and now it wont come down. Now they are stuck!


    Any suggestions other than taking it to the dealership? Its still under warranty


    Thanks

    Isn't that where they're supposed to go?

    Get a plastic fork or spoon (unless you have plastic trim tools around) and pull down harder, the only harm i see you doing is to your sunglasses.....

    You did push the cover up to get it to release? Sometimes you have to squish your glasses to get it to release. Not something you want to do every time if they don't fit but sometimes mine get moved around and are hard to get out.

    With that being said, I know my wifes glasses don't fit in there.

    You could always remove the overhead area and try to get them out that way. There's a pin on the right hand side that indexes full-down and half-down, that you could also try to finagle, to get it to drop all of the way down

    I had a pair of Oakley's get stuck as well. I ended up pulling it down harder and it came free. I feel the holder for sunglasses is a tad bit undersized and I don't use it anymore. My Oakleys certainly do not fall in the large glasses catagory.
