Angry Limp Visors

Ok , Ive had it, this has probably been covered here before , but I cant take it anymore, I must rant..

Does anyone else suffer from the SVX visors suffering serious droop? Mine are now just limp enough to stay up until I hit a bump, at which time they drop fully , briefly obstructing the road completely!! (I am fairly tall, and left with no visibility until I raise them back up..)

This HAS to be a safety issue....has there been a recall?....
Going to try 1800subaru3...

Yes, many of us suffer from that. I use a small strip of velcro on the back of the plastic on the visor that seems to work decently.....

Anyone else?

Default fuzzy

Well, I have the Darn "Suede", which is too fuzzy to let anything stick to it...and its of course slightly heavier, making it worse..

I've tried the velcro and its okay. Best method I've found: Take the visor off the car, be careful of the wires for the lighted vanity mirror. You can pull off the "stem" of the visor, the part that screws into the headliner. There is resistance, just pull the stem apart from the rest of the visor by wiggling it and rotating it while pulling. The problem is that the visor stem looses some of its diameter after a while from wear, less friction= droopy visor. The Fix: get some heat shrink tubing, big enough to cover about the inch or so of the stem that goes back into the visor. It will just fit. Then get out the blow dryer and shrink that sucker so that it fits tight on the stem. Then put the stem part with the heat shrink tubing back in the visor, wiggle it back on, it'll be a tight fit now.- put visor back on the car. Did this about a year ago, works great and doesn't cost a lot. hth,
