W211 Sun Visor Options

Post by PunkJr » Sat 05 Nov, 2016 10:20 pm

Hello all

My wife's W211 (E280CDI) has got fairly basic flip down sun visor's. I notice that there seems to be a second type of visor available which has two individual panels. I have also seen https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-e9sO81Zpa0 that the visor's on the M Class are similar, however they can extend out when the visor is swung around to the side window position. I have not been able to see whether the two part visor's on the W211 have the same feature. I sit back a fair way from the wheel, and there is a gap between where the visor ends and the B Pillar when the visor is swung around, and often the sun sits right in the gap. We are going on a long road trip soon and I was thinking of buying a driver's side two part visor, but I won't bother if it won't extend. Has anyone got the two part visor in their W211?

Thanks
Tom

Hi Tom,

are you sure, you cannot move them? Mine (2008) have it. You can move them towards the side window and then pull them back, depending on where you're sitting. Is yours a pre-facelift (2006 and earlier)?

Best regards
Thomas

Hi Thomas

Mine is a facelift 2008 Sport Edition. Definitely fixed visors. It's good to know yours extend, thanks for the info.

Hi Tom,
It is good to see you out there still in the internet. How are your watches?
