Question about 2006 Hyundai Sonata

5 Answers

Sun visor on driver's side won't stay up or all the way down. 2006 Sonata The dealership just told me that it was no longer a recall, as they don't replace all visors - only the ones that have problems. The good news: they'll replace any problem visors under the 5 year, 60000 mile mark. Hope this helps!

    I had my driver side visor replaced at just under 60k miles under the warranty and now at 100K miles its doing it again but now its in my field of vision. I have had so many stupid issues with this car. i feel that if the same problem happened after 40k miles that is proving what a crappy part that is. i can't even use it to block sun in front of me, it wont go all the way. HELP

That is a T74 Campaign. that should be covered if your car is under warranty.

Pull the visor to the right exposing the metal rod. Use vise grips to flatten the rod in several places. Force the visor back on to the rod.

It's not exactly a "fix", but if you put the visor in the "up" position, a toothpick can be placed in the hinge perpendicular to the visor's shaft (a little difficult to explain but I could SHOW you in a heartbeat). The end of the toothpick nearest you is on "your" side of the visor and the other end rests on the plastic fitting into which the hinge mounts. It's not like there's a lot of weight to the visor. No Velcro, no drilling or sewing, no clips. It holds the visor nicely and you can simply remove the toothpick if you want to make use of the visor. We found colored toothpicks that aren't far from the color of the upholstery. Our car is an '06 and there's no recall. Near as I can tell, there IS a recall on the '07 for the very same issue.

Well guess what? I have had this problem for a month and finally decided to get it fixed before my 60,000 mile warranty ran out. I called to make an appt. and they told me my 5 year warranty expired on January 29-two days ago. They told me the part cost $150 plus labor. Fortunately I am able to clip the edge of the visor into the little latch and keep it from impairing my vision. My next solution will be to use adhesive velcro strips.

If your car is still under warranty, take your car back to your dealership and TELL them to fix it! Once a recall, always a recall, car companys don't just stop honoring a recall because they fixed a few cars. If they still give you flak, tell them where to shove it and take your car to another dealership. They will honor your warranty because your warranty is through Hyundai- not the dealership- same with the recall- it was enacted by Hyundai not the dealership. Ooooh sheisty dealerships irk me off! Good luck!

Would the drivers side sun visor be covered under the warranty? It will no longer stay up. The care is a 2006 sonata with about 57,000 miles.


Dear Loose Visor....
If you purchased this vehicle new than this visor still might be covered under warranty...especially if you bought an extended warranty.Some warranty companies cover any and everything from bumper to bumper no questions asked.A sure answer would be to make a quick phone call to either the extended warranty company if you have that coverage or the dealer that you had purchased this vehicle from.Thanks for your time!!! If you have any more questions you can get back to me.HOPE I COULD HELP!!!

As they work on friction you may be able to
compress the material on the outside which will then give the inside more grip.
Put a cloth around the top of the visor to protect the material and use Mole grips with the half circle jaws or pliers of the same construction grips to squeeze the area around where the rod enters the visor

Other option is a wreckers yard?

If under 60,000 miles, take it to the dealer for replacement - free of charge. Both sun visors on my 2006 Hyundai Sonata did the same thing and had them both replaced, but now out of warranty and driver's side has done it again so I'll have to pay to have it fixed. Looking for a used one online now. I guess this is just a defect in that particular model.

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.

Sun visor on driver's side won't stay up or all the way down. 2006 Sonata


This works on any visor. Obtain a small clamp as used in wiring harnesses. On the shaft end of the visor, 1/2 inch from the end, install the clamp around the visor and the shaft. Drill a hole through the visor for the clamp screw and tighten as needed. I might be a redneck, but it works!!
