Sun Visor Installation


Recommended Posts

I am ready to put my original visors back in my 1974 BMW 2002 (which I purchased new), but unfortunately was not smart enough to install screws before I installed the new headliner to help locate the holes. Now I need to locate the screw holes for the visor pivot point and clip. I found some great photos on BMW FAQ of the visor holes by DanVT (search - Photo request - sun visor mount points), but wanted some additional measurements. I plan to install the clips near the mirror first, and then use that to locate the hole for the visor pivot points.


Can anyone provide the driver side measurement shown in the picture between the left edge of the mirror mount at the headliner to the right edge of the clip, as well as the distance from the top of the rubber window seal to the bottom of the visor clip? I assume the passenger measurements would be the same.

Remove the Mirror.  Take a tape measure and hook it to the edge of the mirror cutout.  Measure 5.25 inches and that should be approximately the position of the first screw hole for the sun visor.  The screw hole is approximately centered with the cutout for the mirror.  Use a pin to probe for the hole.  Both screw holes are the same distance from the edges of the mirror cutout (5.25 inches).  This picture should help with the placement.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
