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.

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.

I have a 2002 KIA Spectra that will not start. I turn the key and nothing happens. No lights, dash lights, nothing!!! I had the battery checked and charged at AutoZone and put it back in. Still nothing....


you always have to reset when you take the battery out or it goes stone dead. loosing power sounds like a battery going dead due to no charging. charge it up and drive it bck to auto zone for an alternator check.

I have a 2002 KIA Spectra that will not start. I turn the key and nothing happens. No lights, radio, dash lights, nothing. Prior to it not starting, my car seemed like it would loose power. I would drive...


The battery could be completely dead or the alternator isn't working. Those would be the first 2 things I would check you can have them test the alternator at Autozone too.

How do I remove the 2007 kia optima sun visor?


Look at the plastic plate that the visor arm comes out of. There are screws underneath the plate. You need to adjust these screws, and that should take care of the problem.

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!!

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.

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.

Sun visor on 2006 Kia Optima has lost it's spring tension and will not stay in the upright position.


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.
