Question about 2001 Volvo C70

Open Question

Broken sun visor

Both sun visors on our C70 convertible are broken. This is a $200 repair and symbolic of a very poorly designed and executed car.

the dealer in berkeley tells me that this car is a problem child and has many design flaws.

it's too low to the ground and scrapes everything.
the front shock mounts went out
the air con went out
the entire car shakes like a bucket of bolts
kragen sells a replacement battery that doesn't fit properly and shorts out on the hood.
the speakers have gone out.
there is a massive blind spot
the brakes are poorly designed
the engine mount went out at 90k miles
the alternator went out.

i've not seen a vw have this poor build quality.

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.

Volvo c70-2004 sun visor Problem: won't stay up and light is continuously on draining battery


usually when the visor break, three things you can do, one is to take it apart( the arm of the visor) slowly and look for a broken plastic part pieces which you can superglue it back together, if the broken plastic peice is not still there and missing then you will have to replace it with the new one. Junkyard or ebay may carry some used. Dealer wont be that expensive either. 3rd, take the lens off and remove the bulb from the visor, this way it wont drain the battery. To hold the visor up you can try to find a velcro tape from auto parts store, by taping one side of the visor and the other top of the roof that way when you fold it up the velcro will stick to one another. this will be a temporary fix.

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.

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.
