I've had the Fusion SE V6 two weeks and the sun visors will not stay locked in place when turning them down, they just flop out of the holder. Anyone else experiencing this problem? I would think that they could just replace the catch or lock instead of the whole visor. It just needs to be tighter between the two sides of plastic which lock the visor in place.

I have noticed this, too. On mine, the driver sun visor does not appear to align properly with the indentation in the headliner which keeps it from staying "clicked" in place when not in use. Every time I use it and try to click it back in place I have to gently "push" it towards the drivers door to get it to fit. I plan on having the dealer look at it at my first service. BTW, I have an SE with the light stone interior. The passenger side seems fine. And I wish the had extenders on them like some other cars.

actually you do have extenders- just pull out on the visor and it slides along the support arm. it's pretty slick. i found out my '05 grand caravan does it too.

holy crap i just went out to my car and checked. that is really cool. however I really like the ones that have the little "daughter" visor that can pull down after you have the main visor pivoted to the side.

I noticed on mine that that the reason they do this is becasue the clips are installed backwards from every other visor clip in every other car made.

The clips need to be turnned around so that when the visors are flipped down they are pushed into the clip instead of out of it.

so can we just flip these around and they'll be okay? it's getting real aggravating, i mean come on, it's a freakin sunvisor. my dodge grand caravan visors take at least 10lbs of force to lock them or unlock them.

well, i was planning on it. the only thing i'm worried about is if it will line up with the fabric on the roof liner or if it will show the cuts up to the clips. just loosening up the screw and turning the clip around should be easy, but we'll have to see if it shows the edges of the cuts up to the clip.

well, i took the visor locking thingy off and it cannot flip as the screw screws into a hole in the roof itself. it looks like someone got the mold backwards on the lock and they just went ahead and put them in thinking no one would notice. But my visors come unlocked every time they're flipped down. Does anyone else have backwards visor locks where the visor is pushed away from the lock instead of the usual into it when flipped down? Am I the only one who has this problem or what?

So the other night my wife and are out running a few errands. I have had my car for almost a year now with no rattles. As we are driving, I get this horribly loud rattle. I driving, holding the dash, console, instrument cluster, you name it. I finally stop the car, tear apart the radio trim thing and continue to drive. The rattle is still there. I figure oh well, I have a rattle and will just take it to the dealer. As I start to drive after putting the dash back together I think that maybe it is my old style remote for the garage. Nope, not it. I then figure out that the visor had come un-hooked.

The same thing happened to me. At first, I thought my Wife left them unhooked. Now I just push them back in the holders every time I get in the car. I guess I will wait for the fix. I still have 20,000 mile left.
