I have an 06 for 1 month and mine broke today & fell off - hard to drive with the visor hanging from wires.
Hey, somebody check the part number on your broken visor if you can find it. We all wanted to know not too long back whether or not they were replaced with an identical visor, or an upgraded visor. I still have the part # from the new one, but don't have the old part #.
just took it in to my dealer service today. While I stood there the guy went to the back, got a new one, replaced it, and said "All fixed have a great day." I really hope that is how they handle any other problems I come across.
my car was built in June of 03- so my sunvisors have been in the car over 3 years now- no cracks or breakage. so far . i swear i think the early 2004 cars are built of better stuff than the later 2004 and onward cars.
I have a 06 Shinka as well and my visor broke after 2 weeks of ownership. I asked the dealer if I could just pick up a new one but they said since it is warrentee work they have to do it. I need to get the new one ordered now.
2006 Base 6MT, 1022 miles, exactly 12 DAYS since delivery... Climbed in the car today and found it broken, probably been broken since the last time I drove the car on Monday when I folded the visor back up. High desert heat probably damaged the soft plastic where the visor clamps together.
I have been through 6 of these sunvisors. They just crack in half and hang by the wires. Our dealership has been good to replace them every time, but frankly, I am getting a bit tired of going in to get them replaced. You would think they would come up with a new design. I thought it was because of our Arizona heat. It gets up to 130 degrees in the closed cab during the summer! It just seems to melt those poor plastic sunvisors.
I have had my 06' about 2 weeks and the drivers side visor ripped the inside piece that hold it on and cracked the entire left side open. It was so bad that I ended up having to remove the wired and take the visor off because it kept droping down when I was driving.
tell me about it, these broken visors are a pain. mine broke on my 06 shinka after two months. they had to order them and it took 3 1/2 weeks to come in. mazda has not updated them yet, so i suspect it will happen again.
