Hey,
I'll try to apply some Loctite (thread locking compound) to the friction mechanism (silver part) to see if that will work before I try crimping it.

ELSE / .. There's no adjustment. The visor is held up by a friction mechanism inside that gets lose over time. The best you can do is cut the visor open, clamp the friction mechanism tighter and sew it back up again - or, like I did, get a new visor on ebay.

Thanks
Fame !

Sun visor won't fully retract


look up in the corner of the visor where it mounts.. usually there is a small screw there .. raise the visor up in place and tighten the screw..it should stay up..if not ..use a bit of velcro on the visor and the headliner above it..cheap fix but it works..also invest in a windshield cover they are only a few bucks and work for other uses also.. they make a great emergency mat if you need to look under the car on naty ground(rain, snow, mud,etc)

Driver side sun visor will not stay in up position on my 2006 toyota rav4


I have fixed this at the mexican way, but really cheap and effective, I had same issue with my rav4 2006, and the velcro magic fix it, let me tell you that u need to obtain the one from lowe's/home depot original "velcro" strip 4"x 2" industrial strenght. stick both part separately and let them cure for 24hrs, without being together, 24hrs later, close the visor, as you normally do, that is the only way it will have the contact force enuff to keep visor up. I tried before with cheaper velcro alternatives, and did not work, hope this helps

I have sun visor prob also. 2007 hyundai sonata se. Sun visor wont stay up on driver or passenger side. I currently have velcro on them which does not stick in the heat of the summer time. and the dealer...


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?

Sun Visors won't stay up.


Bring it back to the dealer. That happened to mine and they replaced it. Also had problems with the drivers seat. It would not go back & forth. Dealer fixed.

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


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!!!

Driver's side sun visor won't stay in place. Can this be repaired and not replaced totally?


You need to replace it. Don't do it with another 2002 sun visor. I did and guess what, it did it again. I also had it replaced once by the dealer when under warrenty. Its a bad design.

In the end I replaced it with a sun visor from a 2004 (I think) model. I got lucky and found someone selling new sets on e-bay. It is a new design so you should replace both so they look right but they fit. As an extra bonus it also had a memo recorder along with the home link and the new visor slides out to give you better coverage than the '02 model. Best of all, the defect that causes the visor to slowly tilt down has been corrected. After 2 years, it's still working.
