Floppy Sun Visor

Happy New Year all.

Was wondering if anyone has had the dreaded floppy visor syndrome, and how, if at all, you fixed it.

If not fixed, does anyone know of a place to get custom or just replacement visors.

I have read about OEM replacement visors that are crap.

Thanks

I am thinking that there is a set screw on them to tighten them up......................

You could try Rockauto. I think the visors should have Velcro on them so this flopping stuff never happens. Dunno why they don't....

That's what I though Nathan. But I removed it today and didn't find anything to tighten. With the sliding function that these have, they can't put a screw like the older ones could.

Ryan, mine currently has Velcro on it too. But I'm trying to get all the little stuff fixed correctly. these details bug the crap out of me. I thing its an OCD thing. I was hoping to find something custom I could put on to make it a little none standard. But just fixed would work also.

Well Dave, I tried. I will have to look at mine and see what keeps them up.

Really? lol that's funny! hey if it works! I was just saying I think they should come from the factory with velcro, it just makes sense to me. or like a snap button or something....anything to keep it from obstructing your view. Hope you get it fixed.

The visor grips the rod just with friction. From what I've read, it's a real PITA to strip down the assembly and work on it.

A hook-and-loop fastener would work, but it would have to be stitched into the headliner and the visor. The adhesive would not grip the cloth enough to survive the first bump/pull down.

??? There has to be a way to tighten it even if you have to take it apart and squeeze something in the back to make it bind a little.

Question

Would there be any way to improvise a spring system for the rod - kind of like the old fashion wooden clothes pin had?




If you find a fix let please us ALL know - it may be a more common problem than we think...
