1971 Spider sun visors on driver and passenger side both rotate down when I hit a bump or travel a rough road. I have tightened the screws but that doesn't help. Some of you must have had this issue. Is it fixable and if so how?

The problem is that the pivot shaft comes loose from the bracket that attaches to the windshield frame. The solution is to 'pin' the pivot shaft to the bracket to prevent it from turning. Then the clamping screw has something immovable to grip.

As I recall, you can buy from an Alfa Parts in England the parts for about $3.50 in black, and $5.00 in chrome. I had to replace mine a few years ago.:beta1:

Don, thanks. I did the repair mentioned in the first reply. It appears to have worked but I will check out your suggestion too.
