SOURCE: Sun visor on 2006 Kia

My daughter had the same problem with her visor. I put velcro on the visor to try to keep it up out of the way but after a while the velcro came lose and the visor came down again. I called KIA and talked with a technician. I was told that in order to fix the visor I would have to remove the cloth so I should be able to sew. Not a viable solution. We ended up taking her car in and had a new visor put on. It was covered under warranty. Had problems with headlights going out. Bought the replacement bulbs from NAPA. They only lasted a few months. Started purchasing the bulbs from the dealer and have not had to replace them for over a year. Have to pay a little more but it is worth not having to hassle with their replacement.

SOURCE: sun visors flop down and obsruct the view on my 2007 kia optima

Both of my visors broke -- first the one right after purchasing (had dealership repair) then the other (still under warantee, so dealership repaired). The lady said the 2007 Optimas had a "bad batch" of visors and many needed to be replaced. Fine. Now the driver's side broke again. It just needs to be replaced. I love the Kia, hate the visors. Not a bad payoff for the reasonable price. So far, the only thing that has broken.

SOURCE: Kia Spectra 2002 Sun Visor Loose

Mine did the same thing. Try to find a replacement one at the junk yard (good luck theyr'e probably gone along with the window switches). My second one did it also, and I couldn't find anymore. If you pull the shaft out as far as you can and warp (bend) it a little, it will have enough tension to stay in place. So far, still working after two years.

SOURCE: My Kia 2007 sun visor is broken?

I've had to have this fixed twice by Kia. It's under warranty, so it's a free, fast fix. They do need to redesign this!!

SOURCE: 2007 Optima sun visor is loose.

My 2007 Optima Driver's Side visor also had the same problem. I removed it with the screws under the plate at the base of the visor. Upon further inspection, the plastic inside the "hinge" had shattered inside the plastic sleeve. I am currently attempting some at-home super-glue-and-epoxy repair. If this works, I've saved myself a couple hundred bucks in repairs.

How do I fix a loose driver's side sun visor without replacing it completely? Thanx


This is a known issue with these. There is nothing you can do except replace it. The casting of the internal parts is bad and it slips.

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.

Sun visor won't go back into place


if its flopping around or feels loose you can try tightening the "hinge" that connects it to the roof and tightening the screws on the visor itself. That might align it enough to fit again properly.

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.
