There are two little plastic pins that snap against a spring steel clip and these have broken off.. - for @ $180.usd you can replace the unit.. or we applied two small velcro discs ( ask at any hardware store) under the mirror and cover and that seems to work fine. They also make adhesive magnet strip that might work. A fix that we used for a few weeks was to clip the garage door opener on this visor..it held it in place nicely. Good luck

I purchased a set of tan vanity visors for $79 n ebay including shipping. I only need the driver's side visor, if you need the passenger visor I can sell you mine.

How to remove and replace RIGHT HAND sun visor With lighted mirror on 2004 venture van ?


Remove the screws from the sunshade mounting plate. Pull downwards in order to disengage the sunshade from the roof. Pull down the sunshade in order to access the electrical connectors, if equipped with a vanity mirror. Disconnect the electrical connections from the sunshade, if equipped with a vanity mirror.
Important: Do not rotate the sunshade on shaft. Doing so may cause the sunshade to become mis-aligned and not properly retained.
Remove the sunshade from the roof.

How do I replace light bulb on the sun visor vanity mirror on 2002 legacy/ liberty subaru


I'm not sure you can. Talk to a Subaru parts guy at a dealership. What I can tell you for sure is this: I replaced the passenger side visor on a '94 Legacy Lsi that was torn off when the car was stolen and driven from WV to FL. I couldn't find a used one and the insurance company wound up paying 135 bux for an original equipment replacement. Good luck. . .

How to fix a Kia Optima Sun visor


My visor broke also, but I REFUSED to pay the $120+ Kia wants to replace them with no guarantee to not have future problems. I took the advise of jacobib berto (the first reply), but went to Lowe's and bought a pack of circular magnets for $2.70. I then superglued 1 magnet to the "mirror flap" on the visor and then another to the side of the light on the roof (make sure you have opposite polarity prior to gluing). This may cause the "mirror flap" on the visor to open when attempting to pull the visor down so I used 2 strong rubber bands on the visor to keep the visor closed when pulled down the visor. Putting the magnets to the side of the mirror flap and the light still allows functionality of the mirror. I thought this was an okay sacrifice when considering the $100+ savings.

ok.. you either bought the lights over the vanity mirrors in the sun visors... or the lights are not working in the sun visors???? Wow man!... think you could take additional classes in the English language? ... what's this issue with 'extra clock' in between the sun visors are not working'???? Tell you what, since you're convinced you have a problem, Go to www.hmaservice.com and register( Vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you have access to shop manuals, service bulletins, wiring diagrams, etc. about your vehicle.
