Am I the first to have this? Stripped screws at sun visor clip assy

Recommended Posts

Been searching around and I'm surprised I can't find any info on this problem, because with an early Cayenne, if you've had it happen...

 

I noticed the right sun visor clip was kind of loose then it just fell off the ceiling. When I tried to screw it back in, I couldn't get it tight because i the threads would slip. Looking at the left side, it had the same problem but hadn't fallen yet

 

Upon closer inspection, it appears the female side on the ceiling is one of those body clips made out of thin metal with a single thread for the screw to grip onto (mind you, this holds up two visors and resist the force of pulling the visor out of the clip a million times)

It's hard to tell how easy it is to get that clip out as it's buried in the headliner.

 

My options:

- try and dig that clip out and replace it with something similar, can't seem to find the part on a diagram (difficulty - ?)

- see if a larger screw will work, unless the entrance side hole is too small (difficulty - what could go wrong?)

- try and put a couple of rolled up steel wool 'toothpicks' in the hole and then see if that gives the screw grip (difficulty - easy, but will it work?)

 

Anyone else run across this issue?

Very nice. Thank you. Too bad the shipping is almost 10 bucks for such small items. I might take a look at the parts store first. The speed nut is a pretty common item and the screw threads look to be in good shape

I don't support paying exorbitant shipping fees so instead I went and paid exorbitant parts prices. Ordered from dealer for 1.50 each. 2 and 2 totalling 6 bucks plus tax. Oh well, I'll skip my Starbucks today
