Hi. Can somebody show me how to remove my sun visors? There is a molded cover over half of the visor base that I can't find the proper way to remove and I am afraid to break if I force it. Any help will be appreciated.

Got this off the forum.

1) Remove the rearview mirror - Hold with both hands and rotate toward you as you sit in the driver's seat. It is spring loaded. It will pop out.

2) Then there are 3 screws holding the mirror base plate on - remove them

3) Next remove the courtesy lamp unit and disconnect.

4) Now remove the sun visor "end" catch (in driver's seat - right) It only was one screw holding it.

5) Remove a "hidden" screw on your left then pull the molding away.

6) Next remove the 2 screws holding the base of the sun visor on.
