How do you replace the sun visor on a 2003 Toyota Highlander?

please be more specific? Do you mean the visors in front of the windshield (inside the car) or so you mean a cover for a sunroof?

The sun visor on the drivers side droops down. Other than replacing it, how can I repair it so it says up?

Screw a small self taping screw just inside the hinge pivot. this can help tighten the visor to the pivot.

Sun visor will not stay up. It fall down and obstructs my view of the road. My husband removed it today for safety. The toyota dealer said it would be $130.00 plus labor.

Stay away from dealers they will charge stupid prices, go to a local car garage which isnt dealer specific and they will do it for about $20 including labour at most.

Highlander - Problem with Sun Visor

I had the same problem with my 2002 Highlander and had the visor replaced twice. This was the driver's side one with the remote garage door entry. The first time was under warranty. The second time they told me that it was going to be an outrageous $630 plus labor to be replaced as I was past warranty. I decided to go with the basic visor without the remote door entry which was $75 and I replaced it myself. This has been in place for almost two years without a problem. I was mad about it all though and called customer service explaining that it was ridiculous that an item which was absolutely necessary for safe driving (especially in sunny California where I live) should be a problem. They ended up giving me a $600 credit to use for future service at any Toyota dealer. I kept the simple visor and got new brakes instead and other service instead. I felt that they listened to my concern and were fair about the solution even if there should not have been a problem in the first place. Hope this helps.

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.
