whats a vent visor?

i imagine all years are similar, take your door panel off, remove the black triangle in the corner of the window (plastic thing). remove the screws underneath it.
find the wire that attaches to the mirror in the door panel and disconnect it.

Ventvisors are the plastic bugshield-like things that go above your windows, so that you can have your windows slightly open...if raining...smoking...etc...

Thorvald, is there anyway to get access to the screws without removing the door panel? Anyway to just remove the black plastic cap?

No need to remove the trim panel unless you need to disconnect the electrical. Just a well placed screwdriver will pop off the "triangle" in order to get at the bolts.

Draken,

I have them. Why do you want to remove the mirror. Usually the can be fitted without problems. They are glued to the window frame. Don't use screws to fix them or you will get a lot of problems, like rust water in the door and so on. But they are nice and give the car a nice finish.

Thanks PPC...I was going to try that, but wanted to know that it was possible to "pop" them off w/ a screwdriver first, before needing to contact CDan for replacement triangles.... :slap:

Hi CDan,

Thanks for your tips on the ventvisor installation...Just out of curiosity, how much are the black triangles? (fingers crossed).

And because I received extremely poor instructions...does the following outline the correct install procedure?

1). Warm up black black triangles with a hair dryer
2). Carefully use a flat edge screwdriver to pry off the triangle
3). Remove the trim piece to gain access to the screws
4). After screw removal proceed with install of ventvisors.

TIA

edit: I was able to get the trim pieces off w/ out any breakage...the rest was easy.
