Steps to Replace Vehicle Sun Visor

Step1: First, locate where the mounting bracket of the sun visor is located. New car models have a plastic cover installed that hides the screws that are securing the screws in place.

Step 2: With the assistance of a flat-head screwdriver remove the plastic cover to reveal the mounting screws. Remove the cover carefully, since the plastic it is made of is usually thin and can break or crack easily.

Step 3: Now, make sure the new sun visor is the exact replica of the one you are about to un-mount. If your vehicle’s sun visor has a lighted mirror or a built-in transmitter, carefully inspect the wiring pattern to be 100% sure of the fact that the new visor will effortlessly connect with your vehicle’s wiring.

Step 4: Now taking the appropriate screwdriver remove the mounting screws.

Step 5: If your visor is equipped with electrical accessories, disconnect them carefully from the sun visor.

Step 6: Take out the sun visor slowly from the headliner of your vehicle.

Step 7: Once the old sun visor is down, position the new sun visor over the mounting holes and start inserting the screws and tightening them with the appropriate screwdriver into the holes one by one by hand.

Step 8: Reconnect the wiring harness to the new sun visor.

Step 9: Put the plastic cover back over the mounting bracket and push it into place.
