Never seen one before... but my best guess would be to keep the sun out. when you put down your visor it doesn't always stop sun from being in your eyes

How do I replace light bulb on the sun visor vanity mirror on 2002 legacy/ liberty subaru


I'm not sure you can. Talk to a Subaru parts guy at a dealership. What I can tell you for sure is this: I replaced the passenger side visor on a '94 Legacy Lsi that was torn off when the car was stolen and driven from WV to FL. I couldn't find a used one and the insurance company wound up paying 135 bux for an original equipment replacement. Good luck. . .

How to remove a sun visor in a 2015 jeep cherokee


unclip the sun visor from the "latch" side. Using a flathead pocket screwdriver gently pry the plastic shroud away around the hinge side. This will expose the bolts for the sun visor. Remove the weatherstripping partially from around the door if equipped with grab handles gently pry the covers off the hinges with pocket screwdriver and remove bolts (t30) partially remove cover from clip for sun visor and remove bolt (t20). Pull firmly directly out on a-pillar to unseat from pillar. Unscrew the three bolts from sun visor hinge side and gently unseat from wiring guide. Reaching above headliner gently guide wires for sun visor down through headliner and detach from harness.

How to fix a Kia Optima Sun visor


My visor broke also, but I REFUSED to pay the $120+ Kia wants to replace them with no guarantee to not have future problems. I took the advise of jacobib berto (the first reply), but went to Lowe's and bought a pack of circular magnets for $2.70. I then superglued 1 magnet to the "mirror flap" on the visor and then another to the side of the light on the roof (make sure you have opposite polarity prior to gluing). This may cause the "mirror flap" on the visor to open when attempting to pull the visor down so I used 2 strong rubber bands on the visor to keep the visor closed when pulled down the visor. Putting the magnets to the side of the mirror flap and the light still allows functionality of the mirror. I thought this was an okay sacrifice when considering the $100+ savings.

The flap for the vanity mirror on the sun visor has lost its tension and just hangs open-can I fix it or do I need a new part?


There are two little plastic pins that snap against a spring steel clip and these have broken off.. - for @ $180.usd you can replace the unit.. or we applied two small velcro discs ( ask at any hardware store) under the mirror and cover and that seems to work fine. They also make adhesive magnet strip that might work. A fix that we used for a few weeks was to clip the garage door opener on this visor..it held it in place nicely. Good luck
