Sun Visor broke - lost TPS & FM

    I went to swing out the sun visor yesterday during my drive home (like I've done a dozen times before) when I heard a pop. The visor assembly had sheared off. At first I thought it just popped out but after fishing in there a bit, the mounting stud looks like it completely sheared.

    Also, apparently, the antenna for the TPS and the FM / XM radio system are in the sun visor. The wires attached to the visor aren't connected very well because when the visor came off, the wire pulled away enough that I lost both FM/XM radio and the TPS.

    I went to the SC and they are ordering a new visor. They have that and a few trim pieces to install so hopefully, they'll come in next week.

    Here's some pics.

    It wasn't until I saw you had a flat tire did I realize what TPS meant.

    I've always been concerned about those sun visors. They don't move fluidly, and I always feel that I'm putting strange pressure on them when I'm swinging them. Like an old man's shoulder that doesn't swing quite like it used to.

    Good luck.
