    Is anyone else having a problem with their sunvisor? I've got an 06 DC and my driver side sunvisor's already gone bad. It likes to not stay up when I want it to. I've been shopping around looking for one but to no avail. Priced one from the stealership, ouch! I even tried some nice velcro to keep it up in place but it gets pretty hot down here in OKC and the glue just melted off. I might try some high temp adhesive but I'd rather repair or replace. Just curious if I'm the only one with this problem. :confused:

    Unscrew them and shut them all the way while they are off. They lock into place. Then rebolt them to the roof. Then just don't use them. Thats what I have to do...

    Added extra awesomeness to its original awesomeness.
    I think this is a problem with Toyota's overall, my wifes Camry broke and won't stay up either. Mine is getting there, it has more and more of a hang as the days go by.

    Thanks. Not a bad idea. I've been looking for replacements but it seems like no one wants to sell me one. Even local salvage yards, I guess no one's wrecking tacomas out there. They say Tacoma's Heal on their own!:D

    Off-topic I know, but you should get some Drivewear lenses. A light green when there is low light, indoors, whatever, then has a visible light transition to a light amber/yellow color.

    Then if outdoors in bright sun, darken to a coppery color.

    I love mine.

    EDIT: Unlike what they describe too they are almost always the light amber color. Rarely do you see just the polarizing which is green. Even overcast weather is enough to turn them at least a light yellowish color.
