2015 Mini Cooper: Sunvisor Malfunction

July 9, 2015

2015 Mini Cooper

I thought for sure that someone would have already noticed this odd flaw in our 2014 Mini Cooper by now. It's literally right in your face, provided you flip down the sunvisor down.

That flap you see hanging down isn't the visor. It's the cover for the mirror on the inside of the visor. When you flip the visor into position, that little cover just flops open. It almost looks as though it's supposed to work as an extended sunblocker, but it's simply a lack of something holding it closed.

Weak magnets? A broken clip of some kind? I didn't see any signs of either.

Any Mini owners out there have the same issue?
