Default How to remove sunvisor?

It's a 1990 LS400. Most sunvisors have screws holding them on, this looks like it goes through the head liner. ? How come there isn't a recall for sunvisors that won't stay in position?

they have screws, just do a search and you can find out how to uncover them that is what the "stickys" are for,,,

Just pop the cover off the part that connects the visor to the roof and there are 2 screws beneath it.

No I don't understand, that is why I'm asking. A photo would be helpful. The car is not here its a step kid car, and the shaft has no cover around it. There is a hole through the head liner no cover just head liner. To see where the shaft goes would require pealing the head liner down some how. Is the head liner the cover your talking about?

iirc it unscrews from the visor side, not the headliner side.

Dicer, it is us who didnt understand, based on the quality of a LS400, we couldnt understand how Lexus could do such a thing.... 1990 is different, like PD said, it unscrews out of the headliner, I dont even know how to tell you how to do it... the photo below is the only one I could find and had to blow it up.. I hope this helps.... sorry we picked on you,,, there are no SCREWS to remove... I recommend you go to a dealer and LOOK at one so you can see for yourself what you are up against.... have you looked on craigslist for a parts car??? might be wise also.. take a photo of it for us.

I'd love to know this, too. The only flaw in my interior is split vinyl on one of the visors, and looking at it gives no clue how to remove it without damage.

Since I can't tell a thing looking at that picture, I'm guessing that is a circlip or something like that. Has anyone here actually removed one? Logically thinking there is no way it would or could unscrew from the head liner. The visor would have to come off the rod that it swivels on, and that rod would have to be short enough that it wouldn't hit anything as it is screwed out. The parts picture looks like the rod may snap into something up in that hole, and maybe a good tug or tap with a slide hammer will pull it out. There is no way it could be a deal where you have to pull down the head liner to access a screw, as there would be no clearance to access said screw.
So it must "snap" into that hole. Anyone know for sure? Where are the lexus techs?

There is nothing online nor does anyone know how to remove them, I would think someone here has done it at some point in time.

dicer it looks like the header panel has to come off. the clip that holds it on is a E clip and I doubt pull/yank will release it. .
have YOU went to the dealer and ask any questions? ask parts to show you one? or are you just asking us?
