I couldn't figure out anything at all on the visor vanity mirror door. I ended up just replacing the visor. 2 screws and 1 wire connector and your back in business. I think the thing that kills those visor doors is when people close the door by flipping up the entire visor with the door open.

my problem is not the mirror door, it's the visor itself.

its supposed to be tight.....

If I remember correctly, there is a spring that sits on the end of the metal shaft above the headliner. It is part of the visor assembly. It compresses when you flip the visor down. It compresses against the plastic mount that attaches inside the cabin, the part that you see. The plastic mount above the headliner can break. Take yours down and look. It just takes a couple of minutes. Carefully pull out the 2 wire harness. There is a connector just inside the headliners. Gently tug on the harness to bring out the connector.
