SOURCE: Sun visor on driver's side

I had the same problem in my 06 Sonata. The mechinism in the fisor that creates tension to hold it in place broke. It seems there is a certain position that if you try to rotate up or down, it cracks and goes limp. $115 for new one.

SOURCE: Sun visor on 2005 Nissan Murano won't stay up/falls down

I resolved this same problem on my 2004 Murano after also being told that it ($350 Visor) was not covered under my extended warranty. This problem is primarily caused by the heavier than normal visor. It cost me a total of $2.69 and about 30 minutes to fix.
To resolve this problem follow the following steps:

1) Go to the hardware store and purchase the Velcro package that contains (2) 18”, 1/2 inch strips (I chose the beige color since I have a tan interior) 2) Using a small screw driver, carefully pry off and remove the small cover that hides the mounting screws for the Driver’s visor. 3) Remove the 2 Phillips screws and drop the visor down slightly so that you can unplug the wires that go to the visor light and now remove the visor 4) Using the plastic velcro strip ONLY , (NOT the fuzzy strip), trim the end of the strip so that it will fit under the visor mount and also punch a small hole in that end of the strip so that one of the screws will go through it. (There is NO NEED to remove the adhesive backing from the Velcro strip)
5) Carefully mount the visor so that one of the mounting screws also goes through the Velcro strip 6) Be sure that the sticky side of the Velcro strip faces down or towards the visor
7) Once the visor is loosely mounted, pull the Velcro strip slightly and then tighten the 2 mounting screws securely. 8) Once mounted, hold the Velcro strip against the headliner and then raise the visor against the strip and the headliner and it SHOULD stick in place since it can’t drop down because one end of the Velcro strip is secured to the visor mount 9) Trim the exposed end of the velcro strip so that only 1 inch is exposed (or less) in case you need to lower the visor at a later time. (I removed a half inch of the backing and folded the exposed end on itself so that it's easy to grasp.) In this way you don’t have to glue anything to the headliner OR the visor.

(If your visor is a vinyl material, you will have to stick/glue the fuzzy velcro strip to the top side and/or edge of the visor so that there will be something for the plastic strip to stick to)

I hope this helps others…. It works for me! (and it sure beats $350!!)

I had the same problem with my 2007 Sonata. I took it into the dealership and they were aware of the problem and fixed it.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: 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 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)

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 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.

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.
