A quick stupid fix, just wrap a piece of electrical tape around the little pin that clicks into the holding piece. :)

2006 Chevrolet Impala Sun Visor fix (this is for the plain sunvisor with no lighted mirrors): Cost, about $10. Tools needed: Cordless drill, drill bits (1/4 inch & 5/8 inch) hobby paint & paintbrush. Supplies: Magnetic cabinet catch - be sure the magnet faces up (in line with screw holes), not to the side. 3 Pop toggles, 1 fender washer. (supplies available in the hardware store - fasteners section). Use the craft paint & brush to match the color of the cabinet fastener to the headliner.
1) Research & know where the power cables lie inside the headliner. One power cable runs around the driver's side indentation for the sunvisor. Do a 'dry fit' of the magnetic cabinet fastener & fender washer, so that you can understand how everything's going to work. And so you can best plan how to hide the hardware behind the visor in your particular car.
2) Position the magnetic cabinet fastener against the headliner & above the visor. It should be placed where it is hidden when the visor is in up (stowed) position. I recommend the outside corner of the visor, closest to the side window. This location should avoid power cables.
3) With the cordless drill & the 1/4 inch bit, use the positioned cabinet fastener as a guide. Carefully drill 2 holes just through the headliner. Insert pop toggle in each hole (it will be a snug fit, use a slightly larger bit -5/8"- if you're uncomfortable with the amount of pressure needed to push through) & expand them. Attach cabinet fastener with the provided pop toggle screws. Retain small cabinet fastener screws that came in the package.
4) Position fender washer against sunvisor in a location where it will be held by the magnet when the visor is raised. Marking this position, or using the fender washer as a guide, carefully drill a hole into the sunvisor (this will require a larger bit than the 1/4", I used a 5/8"). Insert a pop toggle- don't worry if it can't be properly expanded (it will still hold). Using a small screw from the cabinet fastener package, attach the fender washer to the visor. Use craft paint & brush for touchups to fastener. Once paint dries, flip visor into 'up' position & enjoy no more droop.

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.

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.

Sun visors won't stay flipped up.


most of the times on the visors if you look at were it mounts on the car you will see a small screw this is a set screw and if you tighten it just a little bit it should hold your visor up for you. but not all vehicles have a set screw as iam talking about. and if the impala dosent you need to get a compleat new visor
hope this helps you out
