Hi, Quick question that I did not see the answer to in a search. I just put a new suede headliner and back panel in one of the cars, and was going to cover the visors. When I stripped off the fabric and cardboard, both cores were the same, ie the securing and tension screws face the same direction on both cores, thus if installed in the car, one screw would face forward, and one aft. I don't have another car with stock visors to check. Does anyone know if the cores are supposed to be handed or not? Both of these Masonite cores have the holes punched for the vanity mirror - is this correct? I know the visor mounts are handed, this question is about just the Masonite and steel core sections.

Thanks in advance

Mike

That matches my experience with the 3 or 4 sets of sun visors I have removed and recovered.

When I worked at the factory the visors were a subassembly job done by one person per shift and the guy who did the job on the night shift I was on was a buddy of mine, used to do lunch and sometimes brakes together. On occasion I would watch him make them, no there was no difference between one side of the other. it was that way company wide for all of the GM plants, as I worked at GM assembly plant in Framingham, MA and Saturn. just simpler I guess.
