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

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.

The passenger side visor drops down constantly. Any way to fix? The dealer wants $400+ for a new one


Numerous consumers have reported problems with their driver's side sun visor suddenly dropping and blocking visibility, which presents a safety issue. (See: Nissan Murano .ORG, townhall-talk.edmunds.com, www.titantalk.com...etc.)

In almost all cases, Nissan is passing the cost of replacement onto the consumer for this defective product, and has refused to take responsibility, or to issue a recall. I've gone through three replacements myself with no relief from Nissan, and the third one has now failed.

I encourage everyone who is experiencing a mechanical failure with their driver's side sun visor to put pressure on Nissan to correct this problem by filing a report with:

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration2_bing.gif (888) 327-4236 (you will need your VIN#);
Bureau of Automotive Repair (800) 952-5210;
Used Car Sales- Department of Motor Vehicles (800) 777-0133(or your local DMV investigations office listed in your phone book);
Department of Consumer Affairs (800) 952-5210 Recalls; and
Better Business Bureau- Autoline (800) 955-5100.

You also might want to consider filing a small claims court action, or class action lawsuit.

A NISSAN TECHNICIAN, HIMSELF, HAS POSTED THIS ON THE TOPIC: "NISSAN TECH HERE! YOUR GOLD PREFERED WARRANTY DOESN'T COVER THE SUN VISOR. THIS ISSUE YOUR HAVING IS COMMON ON THESE MURANOS AND I'VE REPLACED QUITE A FEW VISORS!"

Driver side sun visor falls down


If you have anything on top of the visor, remove it. If there are any screws visible near the pivot rod, tighten them. You can remove the visor and slightly bend the pivot rod, inside the visor. You can just buy a new one and replace it yourself. It's only a few screws.

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.

Sun visor droops down 2002 ram 1500


where the visor attaches to the roof there should be a plastic "cover" it can be removed but be careful to not break the tabs. You should be able to tighten the visor

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.
