Drooping Sun Visor

Hi Eric,

I took mine apart, the visor just pulls off the shaft, to see how the detent
worked.  There are 2 flats on the plastic shaft covering that engage a U
shaped leaf spring that is molded into the visor.  One would need to
increase the pressure, possably by flattening the U to bring its two legs
closer together.  I haven't done so as yet, not wanting to risk destroying
the visor.  Do you still have your old one, driver's side?

The older 5K visors had a longer flatted steel shaft which at one time I
fixed with a screw and speed nut thru the visor to increase the clamping
pressure.  Not so easy on the 200.
