Ok guys here's one for ya! Is it possible to switch the sun visors between driver and passenger? The reason is that the driver's side visor has a nice little mirror in it. For those of you who have a wife it will do more good on the passenger side! Cause I am not sure I can deal with my wife twisting my rear view to check here wind blown hair... I really do not need the mirror on my side! They both look as though the can interchange. I was hoping one of you may have the answer on how to do it.
Any info you can provide would be great!

Buy a second clip on mirror for the passenger side.

Even if it would switch, it would be upside down, and unusable.

If you see how they are mounted if I switch them they would not have to be put in upside down... They look as though they mount from the back not left or right...

Service manual appears to show that they are just held up there with one screw. Give it a shot and report back.

Order a replacement part from the dealer and then modify the "slightly diff. shape" to match mounting on the passenger side. That way whe will have a mirror when she gets to drive and when she has to ride. May take longer than just clipping on a mirror, but would maintain the look.

Can someone tell me what the point of the visors are anyway? I sat in a Sol the other day, and from what I can tell, I'm so far away from the visors, it is basically useless as a "sun blocker", unless the sun is hovering at an exact 20 degree angle from my line of sight. Oh, well thats what hats are for.

Absolutely correct AJ. It's a roadster folks,,,remove the sun visors completely, and while you are at it, remove the windshield wipers and apply two coats of RAIN-X every month or so. :cool:
