Triumph TR6 Sun Visors
The sun visors fitted to the TR6 were changed in 1972 with the introduction of CR and CF models. These visors differed visually in that they were now a coarse grain to match the rest of the interior trim as opposed to the earlier fine grain style. The fine grain is now the only type available.
Floppy Sun Visors?
If your TR is blessed with droopy visor syndrome there a couple of things that can be done to correct it. The screw that attaches the mounting bar to the visor bracket, (SH604041) should be located and locked in place with a liquid thread lock compound such as ‘Loctite’. This is available as part number GAC1003ML. The screw should be tightened sufficiently to allow the visor bar to pivot but not have excessive axial movement. The use of thread locking liquid or engineering adhesive is recommended to ensure the screws do not undo in service.
Sun visors often refuse to hold at an angled position to block out the bright sun and still allow a clear view of the road. The friction of the mounting bars inside the sun visor framework maintains the angular position. Too much friction and the visor gets mangled, too little and it droops. The fit of the visor outer mounting bars in the visors can be attended to in order to get the best possible use from the visors adjustable angle. If the mounting bar is too tight, probably caused by corrosion and dirt, merely remove the bar by pulling and refit it cleaned and perhaps lightly lubricated. Too loose may be caused by the bar not being located correctly in the visor frame, the frame being broken or the mounting bar being of too small a diameter for the visor’s framework. This can be checked and rectified.
The screws attaching the pivot bars to the brackets should be locked in place with a liquid thread lock such as ‘Loctite’ (available under part no. GAC100), to ensure they do not undo in service.
