Default How to replace a floppy sun visor on the NF Hyundai Sonata -PICS-

NOTE - this was the method for replacing the visor on my 2007 Hyundai Sonata. I don't know if other years are identical.

What you’ll need: A #3 Phillips screwdriver, a slotted screwdriver or other small prying tool and a new visor. The cheapest source I found was a seller on ebay. I paid $43 shipped.



Step 1 - Remove the piece of trim covering the mount for the visor. I used a flat screwdriver, but you can use any small prying tool. It just pops off.


Here’s what the piece looks like.



Step 2 - Remove these two screws. They’re #3 Phillips screws


There’s an electrical connector you’ll expose.




Step 3 - Press the button on the connector and pull it apart.



Re-installation is the reverse of removal. Put it all back together and enjoy your new visor.

Thanks for the writeup! How bad had your visor gotten? Mine is very loose going left to right (from windshield to drivers window), but pretty stable pulling it down or having it up. I am curious if this would help my issue as well. It's pretty annoying when i take a turn and the visor smacks me in the head!

Thanks for the awesome DIY! Anybody have one of those little pivot point covers laying around they'd be willing to part with? I somehow lost mine in the process of changing the visor out.

You can buy them at the dealer. The MSRP is $3.89.

The name is COVER - SUN VISOR PIVOT MOUNTING

The part number for mine is 852363K050 + interior color code.

Had to do this about 2 months ago. Definitely do NOT buy a new visor from the dealer. $100 a piece. Pure BS, so I ordered mine from a guy on ebay. 2 Factory visors for Sonata WITH SunRoof were $89.99 shipped. Worked and installed easy. No more falling or cracking.

Thanks for the DIY write-up.

I just had mine replaced under warranty, in winter it wouldn't even stay up on its own. That drove me nuts. Glad to see a replacement isn't that expensive when the vehicle is out of warranty.
