4.8 GRX Secondary Sun Visor

Post by Clem » 11 Jan 2016 09:46

Sommige mense moet mos met alles speel.

The secondary sun visor on the 4.8 is sprung so that it held up against the roof when it is not in use. On Saturday I heard the secondary visor on the passenger side go "crack" when the passenger was moving it around. Now it hangs limply like a wet rag. Any idea of how this is fixed / what has broken inside?

Cheers,
Clem

Same problem - The plastic swivel housing cracks/breaks - I used an epoxy to fix mine - but it seems like the plastic housing gets brittle after a few years (maybe from too much sun ??) and mine broke again about a month ago - now unfixable I think :confused: - if you guys also have that problem I think that's the Patrol's only flaw :rolling: and what a minor one that is :lol:
