Hi
emmision said SOME VISOR'S HAD A SCREW TO ADJUS TENSION,if yours is old try this 
Look for a  screw at the base of the upholstered visor blades themselves (not where the hinge base ismounted to the car roof), at the permanent hinge end of the visor nearthe windshield pillars. Those are for the tension on the hinges, to
regulate the downward rotation you are experiencing.

Give them a 1/4 turn clockwise (Righty Tighty) and try the visors to
see if it helps, adjust as necessary. Don't overtighten, if you strip
that friction clamp mechanism you'll have bigger problems.

And use a good screwdriver that's the right size - you don't want to
strip out the screw head either. 39-Cent bargain-bin screwdrivers are
soft and can do damage.i think this will help u if suitable to yours...try it...
ok thank u........

What you need is the part that holds the visor in place, im not sure about the name either, but im sure that you won't be able to find this online anywhere, the best thing to do is to go to a car Salvage place or (junkyard) and you'll find the piece there for sure, and for a cheap price.

THERE IS NO SOLUTION FOR THIS OTHER THAN TO REPLACE THE VISOR, SOME VISOR'S HAD A SCREW TO ADJUS TENSION, BUT THAT WAS YEARS AGO AND ONLY ON GM CARS AND TRUCKS, DID U TRY EBAY MOTORS, I HAVE HAD GOOD LUCK THERE WITH PARTS LIKE THIS.

The best thing is to order the assembly from Toyota. this is a factory flaw. the dealership can order for you and install for a small price.

    The dealership will be your best choice. this way you will get a warranty on this order and it will be installed by a service tech. the newer generations are free of this flaw. contact your nearest Toyota dealer.

How to replace 2007 Kia Sportage sun visor


I forced a small nail between the visor rod and the tube (or whatever) the rod goes into in the visor itself. That created enough tension or drag to hold the visor and keep it from drooping. The visor now works in all three positions.

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!"

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.

Sun visor on driver's side won't stay up or all the way down. 2006 Sonata I have the same problem with my 2007 Sonata driver side sun visor broke and will not stay up but keeps droping down in my view....


I have a 2007 Sonata and the driver's side sun visor broke. I called the dealership where I purchased the car, and was told that they only cover it for 5 years/60,000 miles. So if your's is broken, get it in there before the warranty expires. Otherwise the cost is around $80 for the visor unit.
