Question about 2006 Chevrolet Impala

Sun visor won't stay in place & A/C knocking noise

I'm having the same problem as many others on here. My driver's side sun visor won't stay in place in my 2006 Chevy Impala. From reading this it sounds like our only REAL option is to pay $80+ for the dealership to install this!?!? That's ridiculous!

I'm also having problems with my a/c making a knocking noise on both sides of my dash. Luckily, the a/c is still working perfectly but the noise is VERY annoying! Any idea what this could be or how I can fix it without paying a fortune at the dealership?

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)

Drivers side sun visor, 2006 Toyota rav 4 will not stay up


there isnt really a quick fix for this, i suggest you buy another sun viser from the dealers and fit it in.

its realy easy to fit, it normaly just has a cosmetic cover that goes over the screw, pop this cover off, remove the screw and refit the new sun visor.

The driver's sun visor won't stay up, it falls down


Already reported as being a repetitive problem with Murano vehicule owner eventhough they have it alreay replaced.
You can fight as long as you want with your dealer that this is a security issue no recall has been expressed about that so far.

I can say that some people switched the passenger side one with the driver side with little of convenience. I can't say more personnally.
The permanent fix being approx $250 unless you get it one in a scrap yard not knowing how long will be its life time! Up to you to make the decision.
Hope it will help

I have a 2003 Murano that just started having this problem a few weeks ago. As a quick fix, my husband and I switched the driver's side sun visor with the passenger's side sun visor (yes, everything is backwards now, but it's a minor inconvenience). It was very simple to do, and only took about 5 minutes. The cover pops right off to reveal two screws that hold the unit in place. Anyone could do it.
Meanwhile, we are searching local junkyards to try to find a replacement to avoid having to pay $250 (+) for a replacement visor. user_offline.gif

2007 Toyota Camry LE - broken sun visor


most likely a defect. call the dealer and see if toyota has issued a recall on the visor and you might have it replaced for free. other than that, there's always the junkyard.

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.

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.
