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!!)

SOURCE: broken sun visor
On the plastic cover take a small screw driver and pry one of the open ends, in other words if you look at the cover carefully it is shaped like a U, pry on the top right side of the U to un-snap then rotate or twist the cover to remove.Then you can get to the screws that hold it into place/

First drain radiator by opening drain valve,"located on bottom corner usualy the right,but not always." If you open the overflow or remove cap this will happen much faster.For safety sake disconnect ground wire from battery,the radiator is locked down by top cover that attaches to body with generaly 4 bolts, upper and lower hoses have to be disconnected and if it is automatic the transmission cooling lines are connected in stacked fashion,"one above the other."The cooling fan has to be unplugged and it should be removable at this point,"when unplugging fan be carefull with connector so it doesn't break.reverse steps to replace making sure the bolts go in the right place and it all fits properly.the thermostat,"located behind the kneck of upper hose," should be replaced after connecting lower hose because in order to fill the block up and prevent damaging thermostat the block shoud be filled with coolant before attaching upper hose.

most of the times on the visors if you look at were it mounts on the car you will see a small screw this is a set screw and if you tighten it just a little bit it should hold your visor up for you. but not all vehicles have a set screw as iam talking about. and if the impala dosent you need to get a compleat new visor
hope this helps you out
