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.

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.


Thanks, Ron

Don't fool around trying to repair it. I bought an OEM replacement at the dealer but I think you might want to try eBay, too. Three screws and a plug and you're done.
