sun visor help?!?!?

i went to swap the driver's visor with the passenger visor on my wife's jk (just like i had done with my tj). now they won't go back on. i can see a little mettle clip of some sort down in there and have no idea what to do at this point. any ideas?

I have not heard of this. What is the rationale for switching them?

Apparently it allows for the sticker to be up and that way it doesnt reflect light or some ****.... But then wouldnt your mirrors be useless?

some people don't like the look of the stickers facing down all the time. to some, it's just a pet peeve having those things mess up the clean look of the interior. so a lot of people just slide them off and switch them so you cant see the stickers.

I removed the stickers. It seemed to make a lot more sense to me.

true, true. but on the "older" jeeps, like my 03 tj that wasn't really an option. the easiest thing was to just switch them around. i was just going off of what i knew at the time. lol @ me. and now i can't get the dang thing back on.

Simplest think is to remove the stickers. Took mine off first day I had it.

Did you figure it out? I removed the brackets from the interior, because there was no way I was going to be able to muscle the visors back on with my arms above my head. When you push, it goes in about an inch, and then stops, right? There's nothing to readjust inside the visor, you just have to put everything you have into it.

I finished with the mentality that the force would either work (fingers crossed), break it, or do absolutely nothing, and the latter two would result in me having to buy new ones anyways.

I actually peeled the stickers off before removing the visors, I only took them off to bring them inside and douse them in Goo Gone.
