How to Disconnect a Lighted Mirror Sun Visor


Many automobile manufacturers are installing lighted mirror sun visors in place of the standard ones. This type of visor offers an automatic light when you flip open the mirror on the back. When the sun visor becomes faulty or you want to replace it with an after-market model, you need to remove it. Disconnecting a lighted mirror sun visor is similar to removing a standard sun visor except for the wiring, which is hidden behind the unit’s arm mount.

Step 1

Unhook the sun visor from the latch above the windshield. Grab the sun visor from the top and pull down to unlatch it from the hook.

Step 2

Examine the sun visor mount where the arm connects to the vehicle. Some sun visors have a plastic cover that you pop off with a small flat-head screwdriver to reveal the two screws securing the mount to the vehicle.
