1989 Sun Visors

My '89 Silverado sun visors do not stay up and I see no way to tighten them up. Anyone have any ideas for this?

Are the visors falling due to the visor it's self, or is it the mounting bracket?

I replaced my visors.. ( They just pull/slide out, off the 10" bar that is mounted on the roof).... The visor is held by tension, as the bracket 'bar' slides into the visor.

Re: 1989 Sun Visors

they are falling due to looseness on the rod, how did you tighten up the visors, I tried pulling them a little way off, but it did not improve it. I included a photo of my truck color, thought you'd get a kick out of it.

Re: 1989 Sun Visors

Funny..... reverse color combo ..from mind....
( Looks like you have the same long-lasting clearcoat as I did)

The visors "hinge" from the rod, ( mounted on cab ceiling), into a 12" metal-formed tube inside the visor, by friction. I am not sure how to firm it up, ..other than some inventive fix.

( How many miles on that truck?)

Re: 1989 Sun Visors

I was thinking I could try to wrap something around the rod and push it back on. I bought the truck recently from my brother's in-law, it has a total of 86,000 miles, solid and clean

Re: 1989 Sun Visors

86,000 miles? ?? I'll trade ya !!

An idea..... since your truck is so original, maybe go to a salvage yard and buy a same visor ( $2.00 ?).... slice it open and learn how to solve it without damaging your original visor.

( I noticed your dash cover ).... That was the 1st thing I bought. My dash is still in new condition after 396,000 ..
