I have a '04 Murano SL with 37K. The 3x36 warranty was up in April of '07. In Sept. of '06 I had to have the Sun Visors replaced because they would not stay up in place. Particularly the driver side. Under the warranty the dealer replaced both sun visors. About two months ago the passenger side sun visor has started to do the same thing and will not stay up in place. Now that I'm out of the 3x36 warranty (even though I do have the Nissan Extended Warranty) the dealer wants about 300.00 for the replacement of one sun visor. I have seen in one case in this forum were a owner has had this same problem and was out of the 3x36 warranty and there dealer took care of them. Is there any other owners out there that this has been taken care of outside of warranty. Really this can be looked at as a safety issue. Any additional advice would be appreciated. From everything I can gather there is no fixing these sun visors its replacement only in order to fix this problem.
Thanks njjoe, I will take your advisement if I don't hear anything different. I was hoping to make the point that maybe there is some issues with these sun visors that Nissan needs to address. Really now, over the years i have never had a sun visor issue in any of my vehicles. Now this vehicle I spent more than I ever had on a vehicle and get little issues like this. By the way do you have the link for where i can find the sun visor for $187 online? My fear is if I spend another $200 that it will go bad in a year again. Until I have some idea that the problem has been fixed from the manufacturer it wouldn't make sense for me to layout that money. Thanks again, your input is appreciated.
Thanks again njjoe, you're alright. I'll try the 800 number thing. I have a question for ya, the exploded version of how to install the visor that you have shown, does it say anything about how the plastic covering that covers the two screws is to be taken off? Does it just snap out or is there some trick to removing it without damaging it?
Hold on fellas... did I miss something. To fix this (there is a SB out) you do NOT need to replace the entire visor... just the clips that the visor attaches into to. That should be farily inexpensive.
Gonzo is correct. Bulletin# 03-081a entitled 2003–2005 NISSAN MURANO; SUNVISOR SUPPORT CLIP LOOSE AND/OR RATTLES was issued in early 2006, and obviously solved his problem. However, I am not sure if the replacement of the clip will solve your problem. Is your visor dropping out of the clip or slipping (rotating) on the bar?
My 2003 Murano is having the same problem with it's driver's side visor. It either stays fully up, or fully down. It cannot be anywhere in between without falling fully down. I am curious if you had any luck with the 800 number?
