    Default Vectra Visor Clips

    Recently had to remove my head lining, and in turn remove pretty much everything else.

    One thing i have not managed to get back on properly is the sun visors.

    Is there a trick to getting these clips back on. Its the one where the pin slides through the middle and into a indentation on the inside of the clip.

    So far I have managed to snap both of the pins.

    Is it easy enough to get hold of the pins. Or the clip as a whole if necessary. and is it actually possible to fit them again?

    Ahh Thank you very much. Your a star. If only i was clever enough to check that and remove them before putting the head lining back in lol.

    My pliers didnt quite do the trick. Used a screw driver both sides. Ended up pushing the first one in instead of pulling it out.

    Then using a bendy screwdriver bit pushing the metal clips toward the front centre. So i could put my hand round up the front of the headlining and grab them. Aswell as tear my hands to pieces.

    Since your first post there now down

    No more worrying about the visor dropping down in front of me

    Many Thanks
