Question 1984 380sl sun visor replacement question?

Does anybody know if any other sun visors from different models like a 124 or 126 models will fit a 107 sl.

No, but mine came without them, and no way I'm paying over $300.00 for a pair!! Hope someone who has retrofitted a pair responds.

I took mine off and sandwiched them between a table top and a flat board and put a 8 lbs weight on them for several days. That makes them nice & flat for a while. You can also take them apart, install good foam and sew a covering from fine leather.

so yours "puffed up" too?

I never thought of "ironing" them! Great idea! Now if I can just figure out how to remove (and replace) them!

Nasty Visors

My sun visors were so badly rotted and falling apart that they stunk up the whole car. I looked at getting original replacements but went with World Upolstery look-alikes. They look fairly close to the originals but with no mirror on the passenger side, and they don't stink. Even as a replacement product they still cost $100 each.

I know that I looked up earlier posts on replacing the visors and found out that you need to remove the rearview mirror by pulling down on the whole assembly to pop it out. You also need to remove the A-pillar covers to expose one of the screws for the visor mount.


Replacing the sunvisors made a huge difference in how the car looks with the top down, which is my favorite configuration.
