I'll add my kudos to the original write-up! Great pics and explanations!!
Has anyone ever repaired a "floppy" sun visor? My wife's got a 2008 Sonata and it droops. She's thought about adding Velcro to keep it up. But that will NOT help when you need it out to block the sun.
I was able to pull the visor itself off of the "bent tube" that it attaches to. You can see the start of the tube in the 5th photo in the opening post. The yellow wires go through it to power the visor light. There's about the same amount of wire coming out the other end of that tube, so don't pull too hard. (I think I "hand-hammered" it to get it started.)
I thought if I added a thin steel rod between the visor and the tube before shoving the visor back on, it would add friction while still allowing it to rotate up and down. I haven't made it to a hardware store yet, but I think a 1/16 or 1/8 inch rod might work.
Just in case that doesn't work, has anyone got the part number for the visor? And a link to the sellers would also be helpful.
