How-to Remove Sun visors


The first thing you need to do is to remove the cover plate then undo 3 screws.

Once you've done that you need to give it a good pull downwards,

I couldn't get any pics of the wire as its in the roof lining but if drop the centre courtesy light that will help you find it How-to You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login to view.

On mine there some tape and the wire for both lights is stuck to that.

Hi,
Unfortunately I only came across this thread after I'd removed the visor. The problem I have is that when I removed the sun visor the wire automatically detached from its connector and came out along with the visor. Now I want to put the replacement visor in and I can't find the connection point as it's 'lost 'in the headliner.

I spoke with my local VX dealer and they've said I need to drop the whole head liner? Hope you can help.

Drop the light out and feel from that side.

Finally got around to refitting it today, but what a pain. Dropping the centre light didn't really help as I still couldn't get enough access to figure out what the hell was going on up there. (I think they must have used a whole reel of tape on mine because it was a complete mess)
Anyway the connection was actually taped to the headliner up by the door sill? So in the end I just removed the grab handle (which will now be replaced by a sun gasses holder) dropped the roof lining on that side and plugged in the connector, stuffed it all back and screwed everything up nice and tight. lol
