My driver side broke last week. Scheduled to go in Thursday to get "looked" at. I probably used the visor a total of 10 times.

All these stories of broken visors scares me 😳 I have used mine on and off for 3 years and so far so good but I am somewhat careful flipping them up/down

Third time with this issue. Once again the drivers side broke (second time on this side). It was replaced at 17k miles (I am the OP in the thread). Now we are just out of warranty and it is broken again. @JeepCares is there anything you can do about it now that the vehicle is out of warranty? Or do I have to pay out of pocket for your garbage part.

@JeepCares add another victim. 2019 JLU rubicon. Normal use for visor. At this point, you should feel obligated to upgrade/recall the visors. Now I have to coordinate with my steelership to see how many hours of crap I will have to deal with to get this fixed. Guaranteed they won’t offer a rental, won’t have part in stock, will have the Jeep at least 3 times the quoted time to fix, and will have to miss at least six hours of work to wait on it. Frustrating the design is so crappy.

Yep, the design is pathetic, but luckily it's a simple & cheap fix. Our "fixed" visor is going strong for about 2 years since I fixed it.

Well, my 2nd driver side visor (dealer replacement) just broke today.

The original one broke in February 2020, and the passenger side broke shortly after that. I had the dealer replace the driver side and I did the repair using a 5/16" push nut on the passenger side.

Passenger side is still holding strong, so I'm going to do that instead of messing with the **** dealership.

Mine broke a couple weeks ago. Haven't made it to the dealer yet. 32k miles. Seems to be a poor design from jeep.

Just noticed mine were broken this morning. I cant ever remember turning them to the side, only flippling down to undo the top, but i turned them this morning and they were both dangling. 2019 with 19k miles. I'll be taking it to the dealer, unfortunately i will also have another warranty issue addressed concurrently for the hinge paint:facepalm:

Great... I'm outside of 36 months on my 2018.
Driver's side just broke. What does it cost to repair?
