    Is it possible to buy a replacement sun visor mirror cover?

    Hello,

    I just recently purchased a lightly used 2013 Cruze 1LT for my son in college and we're very happy with the car so far.

    About the only issue that we've encountered is that the passenger side vanity mirror cover wont stay on because the plastic pin on one side was broken off.

    Sadly, when we checked with our local dealer, they told us that the warranty had expired within the last 10 days and that we'd have to replace the whole passenger side visor for a parts & labor cost of around $180.

    That's simply much more than it is worth to us to fix the issue but, since it's my sons first car, I'd really like to find a replacement cover if possible to make the car "whole".

    Is there anywhere that I can purchase just the cover portion of the visor?

    unfortunately I think you will need to buy the whole visor to get that cover. Mine has been broke(passenger side) for 2+ years and have never seen any reason to replace it. When the visor is up I can't see it and when down its on the inside so no glare for other drivers. I've had many cars with an uncovered mirror in the same location.

    This guy is parting out a couple of cruzes.

    I bought a driver's side sunvisor from him and he was great to work with. It will be much cheaper to buy a used one...send him a PM, he may still have the passenger sides.

    A junk yard that lets you pick your own part is always an option?

    Ha, wonder about they guys that design plastic part, tabs are always breaking off, or those tiny plastic pins, usually drill a hole and put in a steel pin, can always find a nail of the right size, or a piece of brass, epoxy those in.

    Apparent don't know a dam thing about stress or wear. Reattached broken tabs by drilling in an undersized hole and pushing in a pin with a hot soldering iron. Beats going to the bank to getting a second mortgage.

    Your dealer sure knows how to rob you, and yes, have to buy a replacement visor, getting to the point if you engine needs a new spark plug, have to buy a new engine. But here is what a brand new part cost for your information. Knowing the correct part number can find better deals on ebay. Me, I would use a nice brass pin.

    Phrase for today is snap in, break off.

    Thanks all for your replies and suggestions. Sorry that I haven't been back to this thread sooner to respond.

    I've checked eBay and see a couple of complete visors for sale but still not cheap enough to bother purchasing one to fix it.

    Thanks @lakemg for the heads up on the individual parting out Cruze parts. I've reached out to them and will see if they can help.

    Told my wife about your plight, always dropping her sun visor with a second operation of opening that cover. In one view, without that cover, would only be one operation. But told her to be gentle with it.

    If that little plastic tab does break off, and want the car to be original, would just drill a hole in it and glue in a metal pin. Done this hundreds if not a thousand times. And just snap it back in, does bend a little, and only takes a little.

    If you go to your dealer, will tell you to trade it in for a new vehicle. Also heard this more times than I would like to count.

    Possible to swap in some Malibu visors that have illumination? Or are they totally different size and shape?

    Hi Everyone - I found this thread as the spring that holds my driver's side sun visor is no longer holding any tension. The visor now swings free. Can someone tell me more about this mechanism and what type of repair would be suitable, please? I've found full replacements on Ebay, but then comes the question can I swap it out? I'm decently handy with tools, albeit small ones as I have been making and repairing eye glasses for over 20 years.

    Thanks for your thoughts!

    Rachel
