Sun visor on 2005 Nissan Murano won't stay up/falls down

The driver's side sun visor falls down and will not stay up. I've tried to see where to tighten screws, but find only plastic covering. Does anyone know how to fix? Or remove plastic covering to get to screws?

    Visor falls down continuously for me as well, and has actually become a serious driving hazard. Never had a visor do this. Dealership says it's out of warrantee (past 36K miles). I couldn't get them to explain how mileage affects a sunvisor (much the same as it would affect a glove compartment or door handles). Nissan dealership "offered" to fix it for $450 (before tax). Nissan stated there were electronics involved which caused the price to be so high. The electronics are a battery operated light in the visor which probably costs all of 10 bucks. I can't find a way to adjust the visor either. If someone has come across an idea of how to fix this, I'd be much obliged. (I've tried velcro, tape, a wire contraption that looked like ****, but the visor is hell-bent on falling down no matter what you do)

    This is a widespread problem on these vehicles and Nissan won't own up as usual. Nissan sucks...buy American.

  • ruapeper Jan 30, 2009

    Thank you, Scott99; I haven't yet tried this but sounds like a good idea. I'm with you, it beats the heck out of $350 or more.



    Think I'll send a note to Nissan--maybe if they get enough complaints, they'll finally do something about it!

    My 2005 Nissan Murano Driver side visor won't stay up. Didn't realize I wasn't the only one with this problem... $350 bucks is ridiculous for a replacement. Sounds like an epidemic...

  • MadAZ Murano Apr 15, 2009

    Same deal as all the posting on here, I have a 2006 Murano and I just came from the Nissan Dealership where they offered to rape me and lead me out the door with a $400+ "VISOR" RIDICULOUS.



    Note to Nissan, make better parts or charge realistic prices for your replacement parts. Oh and I also checked on a piece of a metal frame for my driver side seat $700 for that one.



    Sorry Nissan, not in this lifetime.

    Visor has drooped since day ONE on our 2003 Murona. Nissan dealer replaced a clip which did not correct it but since we had to replace 3 alternators, 1 door harness and the digital clock that did not keep time we figured we would just dump it and never buy another Nissan. Problem solved....kind of.

  • texritter Apr 29, 2009

    I have 04 Murano with the same problem,it just falls down when you hit a bump on the road.How can this be fixed?

    sunvisor only stays in certain positions

  • philip Aug 07, 2013

    Inside the visor there is a cover and clamp over the arm that basically puts tension on the arm preventing it from being floppy. The plastic arm that the visor rotates on pretty much desintegrates and/or in my case there is a flat part which also gets worn and rounded. I kind of doubt a plastic bond will hold up to the repair; but I may give it a try. Not sure with what though.

Go to a dealership with a screwdriver and your broken sun visor in hand. take out a nissan murano with an interior that matches yours for a test drive and perform a switch on the sun visors. install your broken visor in place of the one that works, and take the one that works out of the car that your test driving.

Problem solved, its free, and you didn't have to get creative to fix the problem. Plus, they can't blame you for a broken visor considering that they fail in these cars all the time. You're welcome!!!

I resolved this same problem on my 2004 Murano after also being told that it ($350 Visor) was not covered under my extended warranty. This problem is primarily caused by the heavier than normal visor. It cost me a total of $2.69 and about 30 minutes to fix.
To resolve this problem follow the following steps:

1) Go to the hardware store and purchase the Velcro package that contains (2) 18”, 1/2 inch strips (I chose the beige color since I have a tan interior) 2) Using a small screw driver, carefully pry off and remove the small cover that hides the mounting screws for the Driver’s visor. 3) Remove the 2 Phillips screws and drop the visor down slightly so that you can unplug the wires that go to the visor light and now remove the visor 4) Using the plastic velcro strip ONLY , (NOT the fuzzy strip), trim the end of the strip so that it will fit under the visor mount and also punch a small hole in that end of the strip so that one of the screws will go through it. (There is NO NEED to remove the adhesive backing from the Velcro strip)
5) Carefully mount the visor so that one of the mounting screws also goes through the Velcro strip 6) Be sure that the sticky side of the Velcro strip faces down or towards the visor
7) Once the visor is loosely mounted, pull the Velcro strip slightly and then tighten the 2 mounting screws securely. 8) Once mounted, hold the Velcro strip against the headliner and then raise the visor against the strip and the headliner and it SHOULD stick in place since it can’t drop down because one end of the Velcro strip is secured to the visor mount 9) Trim the exposed end of the velcro strip so that only 1 inch is exposed (or less) in case you need to lower the visor at a later time. (I removed a half inch of the backing and folded the exposed end on itself so that it's easy to grasp.) In this way you don’t have to glue anything to the headliner OR the visor.

(If your visor is a vinyl material, you will have to stick/glue the fuzzy velcro strip to the top side and/or edge of the visor so that there will be something for the plastic strip to stick to)

I hope this helps others…. It works for me! (and it sure beats $350!!)

I fixed mine on a 2007 Nissan Murano but buying some strong small magnets at Lowes. Put one through the hole after taking off the visor. I stuck the other on the back of the mirror with velcro. Stays up like a charm. Magnets at Lowes were about $5.00. Beats $300 at the dealer.

I just cut my visor apart tonight and here is the situation. The arm/shaft for the visor has plastic molded onto it. It then runs through two steel loops with space in the middle for a tensioning clip. Regretably, you must cut off the fabric cover near the arm and through some styrofoam that makes up the shape of the visor to get to the arm and tension clip. The clip apparently wears off the plastic that is molded to the arm and when that happens it will not hold its shape. I was only half successful on my complete fix. To truly reach the arm/shaft, you first need to pry off the cap from the (towards back of car) back side then take out the two screws and at same time unplug the electric connection. Then remove mirror/lamp on one side of visor to remove shaft after you unplug the mirror/light There are two screws under the white light cover. Then you can cut the fabric cover near the arm to about 4" toward the middle of the visor to get at the clamp/clip etc. You will need to cut through the styrofoam too. The clip is not easy to take off and you will deform the foam. It will take two screwdrivers. It is hard to get back on too. I cut out the remaining plastic on the metal arm/shaft. The shaft can be slid out after disconnecting the wires from the lamp mirror. You dont have to take off the clip, but maybe you would have a way (better) to fix it w/out removing the clip. There is a paper disc that is tied to the wires before you can the shaft out. You need to untie it. I wish I had a better fix than just cutting off the existing platic off the shaft and wrapping it with soft wire then putting the clip back on. Now my visor falls down but it will stay up when pushed to block the sun. If I get a better answer/solution I will comment again. I did have to carefully hotmelt glue the styrofoam back together and then sew the fabric back on but at least I know how its put together now. Enjoy.

There is a small tensioning screw that should be apperant near the bent metal visor swing arm. Sometimes this screw will loosen up with use. I am not sure what type of head is needed to tighten this screw on your model of car. (Phillips tip is most common.)
Tighten it up a little at a time until it is like you like it.
Presto.

SOURCE: driver side sun visor falls down

If you have anything on top of the visor, remove it. If there are any screws visible near the pivot rod, tighten them. You can remove the visor and slightly bend the pivot rod, inside the visor. You can just buy a new one and replace it yourself. It's only a few screws.

The passenger side visor drops down constantly. Any way to fix? The dealer wants $400+ for a new one


Numerous consumers have reported problems with their driver's side sun visor suddenly dropping and blocking visibility, which presents a safety issue. (See: Nissan Murano .ORG, townhall-talk.edmunds.com, www.titantalk.com...etc.)

In almost all cases, Nissan is passing the cost of replacement onto the consumer for this defective product, and has refused to take responsibility, or to issue a recall. I've gone through three replacements myself with no relief from Nissan, and the third one has now failed.

I encourage everyone who is experiencing a mechanical failure with their driver's side sun visor to put pressure on Nissan to correct this problem by filing a report with:

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration2_bing.gif (888) 327-4236 (you will need your VIN#);
Bureau of Automotive Repair (800) 952-5210;
Used Car Sales- Department of Motor Vehicles (800) 777-0133(or your local DMV investigations office listed in your phone book);
Department of Consumer Affairs (800) 952-5210 Recalls; and
Better Business Bureau- Autoline (800) 955-5100.

You also might want to consider filing a small claims court action, or class action lawsuit.

A NISSAN TECHNICIAN, HIMSELF, HAS POSTED THIS ON THE TOPIC: "NISSAN TECH HERE! YOUR GOLD PREFERED WARRANTY DOESN'T COVER THE SUN VISOR. THIS ISSUE YOUR HAVING IS COMMON ON THESE MURANOS AND I'VE REPLACED QUITE A FEW VISORS!"

The driver's sun visor won't stay up, it falls down


Already reported as being a repetitive problem with Murano vehicule owner eventhough they have it alreay replaced.
You can fight as long as you want with your dealer that this is a security issue no recall has been expressed about that so far.

I can say that some people switched the passenger side one with the driver side with little of convenience. I can't say more personnally.
The permanent fix being approx $250 unless you get it one in a scrap yard not knowing how long will be its life time! Up to you to make the decision.
Hope it will help
Dan

I have a 2003 Murano that just started having this problem a few weeks ago. As a quick fix, my husband and I switched the driver's side sun visor with the passenger's side sun visor (yes, everything is backwards now, but it's a minor inconvenience). It was very simple to do, and only took about 5 minutes. The cover pops right off to reveal two screws that hold the unit in place. Anyone could do it.
Meanwhile, we are searching local junkyards to try to find a replacement to avoid having to pay $250 (+) for a replacement visor. user_offline.gif
