Can you replace the sunvisor clips???

One of my passengers pulled down on my visor and broke the clip about 2 months ago and I was gonna replace it but haven't yet. NOW my wife pulled the other one and broke it too. Does ANYONE know how to pull the visors outward first before you try to use it (or at least see HOW it works before assuming it works the same as yours does)?

Anyway, I noticed that the clips that have the metal inside (that inable the vanity lights to light up when you open it) won't work because the visor is not connected via the clip that would hold it in place. Luckily it doesnt hang very low like I see a lot of other visors but I do want it back the way its supposed to be. Does anyone know how to replace these because it comes right out of the roof and I don't want to screw up anything. Also, if possible let me know the part number to order. Mine is the dark blue interior for an 86 560 SEL...

thanks,

Alan

Very simple, there is a philips screw up through the center. Just unscrew and replace.

The new ones are MB # 126 810 00 12 9051 for black. The last 4 numbers are the color code and are needed to buy the part.

5076 = Blue, 8316 = Brazil, 8326 = Date, 8412 = Cream, 3112 = Red, and 7101 = grey.

Hey Cap:

I'm actually in Acworth (I-75 North and Wade Green Road exit)... How far is that from Lilburn?

Thanks for the part #'s too Steve!

Along the same lines -- can you get replacement mirror covers for the visors? The hinges on mine are shot.

thanks,

Don't know the mileage but I would guess about 45 minutes. Call 770-381-1114 and tell Mike what you need. He'll send it to you if he has it. BTW, my sister used to live in Woodstock and kept a camper at lake Allatoona. I used to love to waterski that lake. Beautiful country up there.
