    Default Visor Mount: Can't get it off my v1

    Okay, how the heck do you take it off? I tried using brute strength and even that doesn't work. I don't think it on backwards because it didn't seem to go in the other way. Has this happened to anyone else? Can someone help me out herE!!!!

    I don't even think think that there is a backwards. As far as I can tell the mount is symmetrical. There's no tab or anything, either. Just push on, pull off. Maybe a drop of oil down each rail to lubricate things a bit? Anybody think that would hurt anything?

    New ones are a little tight, my top cover was replaced in March (possible stripped screw thread) and it came back tight again on the visor clip.
    What I started doing is put a thumb nail on each side of the clip that is facing you, use your two index fingers on the front of the unit to slide it back (until it is broken in you have to alternate left & right) comes out real easy.

    Any chance at all that it might be a little CROOKED? Give it a check!
