I believe you have no options but to replace the visor assembly. They're quite expensive, but I know how annyoing that symptom is. I will be more than happy to provide you with instructions on replacing the visor. Hope this helps!

There is a way to tighten this!! You have to remove the two lights and the rearview mirror, then the upper trim. Now you have exposed a small hidden screw that can be tightened and you did it! See if you can, if not a shop can.
