    When my car was in the Service Center last week they replaced both sunvisors on their own initiative. I was told they had started to crack. Odd, since I've probably only used them about half a dozen times.

    Concern: Replace Sunvisors
    Pay Type: Warranty
    Corrections: Replace 2 Sun Visors Due to Splitting or High Rotational Force
    Replaced both passenger side and driver side sun visors

    They replaced the right side visor on my car because it was too loose -- it would drop down to vertical. The new one seems to have more "indents" to keep it in the extreme locations.

    Notified my Svc Center last week about both of mine. I don't use them much but they were getting loose on the end. Lot of tension in that area. I suspect they redesigned them.

    The passengers side swivel connection to the visor of my X cracked as the swivel had become somewhat stiff after a couple of months of use...Tesla replaced both of the visors during a recent SC appointment (apparently a known service notification)

    One of our sun visors came apart several months ago and had to be replaced under warranty. It was surprising since we rarely move them.
