Sun Visor Disassembly

I have a dark grey headliner in my 90 so I thought I could just buy the ST sun visors (which are dark grey) and fit them. No suck luck. The sun visors are identical but the hinges are different and the mounting holes are in the wrong place.

Has anyone disassembled the hinges off of a sun visor before? Is this possible?

I have not dissambled the visor. don't even know if it's possible. I did however use rivnuts in the roof frame to mount both visors farther outboard, since I installed a larger aftermarket auto-dim mirror. easy job once the headliner is down. The visor arms as I'm sure you know can adjust in width by sliding in and out quite a bit.

Good news. They come out and to my surprise nothing broke in the process. I have to swap one side of each visor as the mount is totally different (180 degree bend versus 90 degree bend).

Thanks for sharing Carl. One of mine is frozen in place (I assume rusted) but wasn't sure of the construction. It looks like a little pb blaster while sitting in a vertical orientation should do the trick to fix it!

No problem. The new pins are actually lubed with some white goop. Just pull in the direction of the pin and wiggle back and forth. It's a snug fit but will come right out.

Carl - Did you pick up a new or used set of ST sun visors? Where from? I'm wanting to change to a darker color for the new headliner to mitigate paw prints and need the sun visors to match somewhat.

Sunvisors are for short people.

Objection! I feel that is a direct slight against me.

So that explains my infatuation with sun visors.

Now that you mention it, I have never actually used mine. I think they keep a bit of rain out though.

I just use them to direct the flow of heat during the winter.
