2000LT is an unknown quantity at this point
Default visor mirror cover

Hi, I have a 2000 chevy blazer lt. Im doing a few things to her so I can sell her.

On both of my sun visor mirrors, the covers have broken off. As you know, this is a problem because the covers keep the light from coming on. To me, it looks like if I were to find some more covers from say a junk yard, they could/would snap on. Could anyone confirm this? Otherwise, I would have to buy the whole visor, and that would be costly. If this were the case, I would most likely be better off just cutting the wires for the lights, correct?

I had the same problem on the driver's side. I put some velcro on both top & bottom and so far it's held in place.

That's an idea, but I would still like to look into replacing the covers, if they would be able to snap back on. Anyone else?

It would depend on what is broken and still intact...the only way i found was to replace them completely. Right now my drivers side is broken and I am using a military helmet band to hold in place. If you want to temporarily disable the switches then I would remove the mounting pivots and disconnect the wires.

My plan is to eliminate this troublesome cover by removing the frame, drilling out (widening) the through-hole for the switch, then attaching a pencil eraser tip to the switch and re-assemble so that contact is made with the headliner. I hate to spend money to replace poorly engineered junk.

98Blazerman is on a distinguished road

You can remove the mirrors by starting at the bottom of the frame. Insert a small screwdriver between the light bezel and the mirror (closer to the light bezel so you don't crack the mirror, then lift up. There is a clip on each side. Then carefully do this again from each side about 3/4ths of the way up. Once disassebled you can either replace or fabricate a repair.
1. Easiest fix is to find one at local junkyard or buy off ebay and snap in place Unfortunately most of these are going to have some wear, so you may be back to square 1 rather quickly
2. fabricate a repair. This is a pain in the *ss, because it is tedious, but I used a short piece of 18 gauge solid copper wire as the "hinge" pin and some "patch and bond" epoxy...the kind that looks like clay, you knead it first, and then press into place and wait til it turns rock hard. Once hardened, you will probably need a small file set and/or a dremel tool, but the outcome of the repair is a more "substantial" and durable alternative and it costs far less $.

Hope that helps.
