Is there a quick and easy way to repair sagging sun visor? I’ve watched a few YouTube videos but I figured I better check with the experts who own these cars and have direct experience with these types of issues. I’m trying to avoid having to pay $500 for a pair of new visors if at all possible. Thanks


You can spray adhesive on it and let it dry. It will hold just fine.

Check out  Permatex 27828 Body Shop Heavy Duty Headliner and Carpet Adhesive it made for this issue.

When you say spray adhesive on it, are you referring to spraying adhesive directly on the visor itself or on the hinge? And would I need to also spray it on the roofliner as well? Will the adhesive damage or discolor the visor or roofliner? Would you happen to have any pictures of this process working?

I apoligize, I was thinking on the sunroof shade liner and not the sun visor.

The sun visors can be tricky to repair. Can it be done? Yes. I have repaired them in the past. Over time they become hard to fold or return to closed position.

Is this your problem?

If so, you can remove them and with caution spray lithium grease on the shaft that goes into the sun visor. Be careful not to get it on the sun visor as it will discolor them.

This would often fix the problem. If they are too damaged, this method won't work. My suggestion would be to buy a used set online that may be in better shape.

I would like to agree with Mercedes Mechanic

You probably have this car in a good condition and trying to fix this issue yourself, might not really leave you with anything better.

You do not have to spend $500. Try to find on ebay, cragislist and similar websites for a bargain.
