    My drivers side sun visor has become a bit loose after one too many times being pulled out and twisted to block the light coming in from the window instead . When unclipped, it now droops down about an inch, and feels like something’s come loose within the assembly . The car has a solid roof.

    Has anyone opened up the assembly and tightened their sunvisor, and if so, could you please document what you did ?

    I have done this. You first have to remove the plastic cover over the screw; this is the difficult part. The cover is the part that surrounds the arm mount and is shaped like the letter 'C'. It has three slight tabs that clip over the edge of the metal base behind it—one each at the top and bottom of the 'C' and one at the 'back'. It needs to be spread further open to release the tabs at the top and bottom (I did this using a small spudge that I slipped under the cover), then slid back to release the third. Then you will need a #20 (if I remember correctly) torx driver to tighten the mounting screw. I suggest tightening it a lot; my first attempt led to it loosening again.
