Yep. I do it all the time, you slide the two string holders up and they will pop out, then you just push the back against the hinges, they pop out too. then just turn it sideways and it will come out of the vehicle. to reinstall, reverse the process. all vehicles with these shades operate in a similar manner and it is made to come out if you need the extra room. don't worry about breaking anything (unless you're pulling it the wrong way and forcing something). some people don't put the strings up so that it is always flat, that's ok too. some people never put it in their vehicle. do whatever suits you best.
