    Strange - I tried to post in another thread and my post just sort of...vanished.

    Anyway, I have a Maserati MCV from back when Ferrari was charitably trying to rescue the brand and I also have a sagging visor, mine on the driver's side (LH). From the photos I've seen posted, it looks somewhat the same and I'm wondering if anyone knows if the innards are interchangeable? Also, is Dave still doing repairs? Good luck with the knee replacement - I've torn my MCL twice and I suspect that's like a hangnail relative to a knee replacement.

    As far as I know no other visor shares the same hinge pin as the 550/575, concept yes, innards no.

    Another visor fixed by Dave!

    In my case, the post in the hinge had been bent to try to keep the visor up. Dave reported that the broken plastic piece had been glued in so it wouldn't turn. He said it took a lot of screwing around to get the piece out.

    All fixed now, thanks Dave.

    I have ordered new parts because the last batch wasn't up to specifications but they won't be here for about three weeks or more. This means I can't take any new visors for repair until then.

    I will post when the new sleeves are in stock.

    Hi Dave,

    I am new to this forum and this is my first post on this site. I recently purchased a 550 and have droopy sun visors on both passenger and driver side. Are you still helping others with this issue? Would you mind private messaging me as I'm not sure how to contact a member directly. Thank you!
