Volvo P1800, P1800 ES

Here we show how to install the sun visor hinge in a left sun visor (1051777). With the sun visor on the right (item number 1051779) the installation works accordingly (mirror-inverted).

To insert the hinge you have to cut a hole into the sun visor. To find the point to cut, you have to feel the frame under the cover. On the front side right beneath the screw. When you find the bracket and pipe where the bolt of the hinge has to be inserted you got it.


We have put a frame without the cover on a sunvisor. Here you can easily see what your fingers are looking for in the previous description.


When you are sure about the correct position you can cut through the cover.


After the cut is placed properly, you can see the bracket in which the hinge will be inserted.

In the following three pictures you can see how to insert the hinge correctly.

Most important is that the nose (red circle mark) does not point up, like shown in the picture but points down (next picture) to slide between the "wings" of the bracket.

Push the hinge into the bracket until the nose appears in the cutout of the bracket.

When the hinge is inserted correctly it can easily be turned with the nose in the cutout.

Here you can see the inserted hinge with the nose in the correct position (red circle mark). 


Important: To fasten the screw, it is best to press the sun visor onto a table edge, at the position of the frame, otherwise the screw cannot be firmly turned, because the mounting of the screw has been bent apart by installing the fastening.


This picture shows the ready installed hinge with fastened screw.
