Sun Visor FAQ



Generously written by Marvin Stockman.


SUN VISOR FIX: I was able to fix the sun visor on my 91 9000 by cutting away about 1/2 inch of visor material where the visor shaft enters the visor. This exposes the metal sleeve that the visor shaft runs in. I placed a small hose clamp around the sleeve (you will have to drill or cut away a small amount of the plastic material that supports the sleave to allow the clamp to get around the sleave and shaft, but this will be obvious when you cut away the visor material). The clamp provides friction between the shaft and the sleave, and really does not look to bad because most of the time you don't see it with the visor in the up position. Blacken the exposed foam with a black marker and the repair is almost invisible. The repair should not take more than 15 minutes. Make sure to remove visor first.

I fixed mine by simply jamming a plastic straw onto the metal rod and pushing the asembly back into the visor, its worked for a couple years now.
