Thumbs up Sun Visor fell

On our last trip going to Bodega bay ca. our front ac cover blew off. naturaly it is painted the color of the body. "2002 Monaco Dynasty" any suggestions would be a appreciated. I hope that a new cover is still available. Then on the way home. my wife's power sun visor came crashing down on the dash, while rolling down the freeway. scared the H out of both of us the wiring was holding one end up, and it still runs fine. But one of the plastic tabs has broken off. Are there parts available for these things. once again any help is always appreciated . one other note the California roads are in bad need of repair

When ours fell it did the same thing. Plastic tab broke. I was able to put it back up by just using a wide washer to span what was left of the flange. I think I put washers on the rest of the existing tabs for safety.

On the AC covers, get them from the manufacturer of the AC unit. Mine were shattered in a hail storm years ago and I replaced all 3. Parts widely available so not hard to find. Don't leave them off as the AC units need protection from rain etc.

On the sun visor, been there. Forget finding parts - I fixed both of mine for under $5. My first one only one side broke, so I used plastic plumbers strapping, made a loop about the right size and used a particle board screw to mount it to the ceiling, then slid the broken end in and hooked the other (unbroken) tab under the screw and tightened it. That was 6 years ago and hasn't been a problem since.

Second one, both sides broke, so I got some double sided velcro and some single sided/glue backed. I first cut the double sided (clings to itself) into strips long enough to wrap the visor, and again used a particle board screw with a washer to mount them where they would wrap the visor but not interfere with the screen. I then put a strip of glued vecro on the back of the visor and a strip on the ceiling to hold it in place while I secured the double sided strap - if you look at the picture you can see I also put a bit of the glued velcro under the double sided strap to keep it from shifting. This one failed about 5 years ago and hasn't been a problem since.

Apologies - due to some hidden "feature" in my iPhone ALL my pictures appear here upside down.

About 10 years ago our passenger side sun visor fell after hitting a big jolt in the road. The tabs on the visor where the mounting screws go through broke like yours and the others. I was on the road headed West so I needed that sun visor for my wife.
I took a large black zip tie that I had several of in a storage bin. I drove the same mounting screws through the zip ties, screwed them into the existing holes and looped the ties around the visor on both ends and cinched them up tight. Cut the excess tie off. If you weren't looking for it you would never know there are zip ties holding it up.
Did the other side proactively because I knew sooner or later it would fall also. They are still there.
Big zip ties. About a 1/4 inch wide, maybe a little wider.
