GM uses bent metal clasps to secure the visor position. If you are mechanically inclined you can buy buy new clips for roughly $10 and install them yourself or do what I would do which is remove what is there is gently bend them back to an oval vs the circular shape they have now. There should be two philips head screws holding the assembly. Remove the two screws (per side) an slide the visor off the mount to reveal the metal clasp. Should you have any questions simply reply back and I will do my best to help.

Good Luck

Use a binder clip. Large enough to grasp the visor and the bar. That's an almost for free repair.

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.

Passenger sun visor falling down how to tighten up the visor?


IF there's no lite IN the visor, you can sometimes slide the visor off the shaft by moving it up and down while pushing it to the side with it NOT in the rest. Then if your lucky, squezze the pocket in a couple places with pliers to kinda crimp it. Then put it back. If you have lites on it, then you need a new one or put some velcro on the headliner and it to keep it up when not in use.

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


I just fixed this same problem on my 1993 Toyota Camry.

First, I tried velcro, but in the hot weather the glue wouldn't hold to the fabric so the fix only lasted about 6 months.

Just now I gerryrigged a black office paper clip - the big kind with the black clip attached to two big silver metal hands - to the visor and metal arm.

Magic, it's fixed, and for free.
