Brera Sun Visor

Hi

My passenger-side sun visor broke the other day on my 06 Brera.

Spoke to a dealer to do a "paid-for" fix, but was told that the sun visor part has been discontinued by Fiat.

Any advice where I could get one from?

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure Autolusso will be breaking a Brera, get in touch with them.

I'd suggest you double check with some other dealers. Have they really discontinued a part so soon after production ended, really? Pretty shocking if so.

My wife managed to snap the passenger side visor off on my 06 Brera earlier this year.
Guess, being on the passenger side it doesn't get used much and tends to sieze up.

As a temp repair I super-glued it back into place intending to get a replacement.
Looks like that temp repair has now become permanant.

With hindsight, I would have given it a quick wiggle and a spray with some form of lubricant every few months. Maybe a good idea for anyone whose visor is still properly secured to the roof.

My temp repair didn't hold. Looking for a passenger side visor for my Brera. Seriously no longer available new?

I will ask parts to check that number every few weeks to see if it changes.

90 for a sun visor, I feel a bit of amateur engineering coming on.

It's a long time ago that I was looking, I had success finding one at Veloces of London (second hand). Great service from those guys, too.

Good luck with your search...

I've ordered one. The dealer will have an ETA once the order is accepted by Alfa. Fingers crossed.....

Mine broke on the right hand side today. I'm getting it glued back in place. It will still hinge up and down but not towards the drivers door which I've never done with it anyway...

My RH side one broke also and I thought I'd been quite clever in effecting a repair that still allowed full functionality, but alas - it didn't last more than a couple of months . Priced one at EB Spares late last year (121.00!), but when I came to order it I was told it had gone on back-order with Alfa and no eta date. If anybody has any information regarding availability of this item, please can you post? Thanks.
