    While I was driving into work today my sun visor broke. I was headed south and the sun was glaring so I put the visor down, but still had it in the clip. While I was driving the visor suddenly fell and would not stay up. The visor is currently hanging by the wire on that side if the other side is not clipped and you can't use it at all. I put in a call to the service department and waiting for them to call me back. I only have 13,450 miles and it is only a year old. 2020 JL. Just wanted to share if any one else has this issue.

same here. My visor broke about a month ago when I had the sun glaring. Mine is on backorder with the dealer with no idea as to when they will have the parts. The way Jeep is building the wranglers/Gladiators they should just do a recall and rebuild the damn thing. I am still waiting on a steering gear box with an estimated install April 2021 and we placed the order in October. My only real complaint is my steering, but I can't believe they are having issues with a visor too

I’m sure I’m not the only person who fixed there sun visor. Probably still under warranty but fixed myself it’s EZ all you need is a 1/4-20 tap , remove the two torx screws that hold up the visor, after tapping the visor use a low profile button head bolt/screw. Better than new...! My wife can’t break it off now when she gets out gym...! I posted some pictures.This is base model fix. If you have wires going through it probably won’t work. Good luck 🍀

Thank you so much for the post, this is so far the best solution!!! For other folks who might want to try this method, the size of the bolt is 1/4-20 x 3/4'', I also added a washer to make it more secure.

THANKS SO MUCH!!! This was easy to do and beats the endless wait for backordered replacement visors from the dealership even if they are free under warranty.

Great. This looks much simpler than some of the other self-fixes I've seen. Nicely done.
