Welcome to the club!

Screw them down harder on the little hindge clamps. I used a thick piece of paper in the catch holder to make it tighter so it wouldn't twist down. It kinda worked.

Good luck,
82 SubaruHummer...been there done that
01 Forester...going there doing that

I kinda shoved mine over to the side some on my '87 GL10. That gave the clips on the roof some more bit and it seems to work OK.

I'm with subiemech85. the driver's side visor on my '88 xt6 always was falling down, no matter, what. I replaced it with the driver's side visor from my '89 xt6 parts car with less miles, and it functions perfectly, just like it rolled off the assembly line (the visor, anyway :/)

I yanked the stupid little mirror off to reduce weight. works good now. it used to drop at every rail road crossing.
