How do you operate the sun visors?

While your car’s sun visors aren’t the most technologically advanced features, they do provide essential benefits. They’re designed to block glare from the sun to make driving safer and more comfortable. They’re also simple to use. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Flip the visor down to block glare from the front.

  • Unlatch the holder and swing the sun visor to the side (against the window) to block glare through the side window.

  • Fold the visor back up when the glare dissipates.

Tips

  • If your visors are equipped with the slide-on-rod feature, you can extend them further. Don’t forget to slide them back in and replace the visor when you’re done.

  • If your visor is equipped with a lighted mirror, just lift the lid to turn on the light.
