Mk3 visor extension
 
My big ass had to move the seat back. The visor doesn't extend far enough. Any of you know where I can replace the visor with one that had an extender? Did the Mk1 or Mk2 versions have that?

Yeah.. i find the 'small' undersized visor to be annoying. Wish it was bigger too. (with a flap you could flip down. or, to the side window.. so i would not have to be flipping the stupid thing from front to side..

Anyway you can retro fit one of the sliding ones from a Ford that has one? Aunt's 2010 escape has slidey visor thingies

Might even just need to modify the current slide, get like a smaller tube to put through it? Dunno. not too much of a fabricator..

Worth mentioning also, ever see the dual visors on some Fords?
I know I've seen it in Expeditions but those are huge. My aunt has told me about them in her old Explorer. My old 94 Taurus SHO had manageable sized ones
Here's an Expedition's
Basically you get one to cover your side and the front AT THE SAME TIME [headbang]

I was wondering why these didn't exist this morning! Apparently they do... I drive SW to work in the mornings so I need it on my left and in front of me going on curves on the highway.

If you have the built in garage opener in your visor I doubt you can change it...I hope you can though

I don't. Standard visor. I thought about cutting a sliver out of the visor and inserting a plastic piece. I would have to steal one of those slide out pieces from a junkyard car.

Maybe there is a solution for this now. I heard the 2013 Job 2 cars have a sliding visor? Maybe 2014s will also and we can buy the part to put in our cars.

They do. The 13 SE I leased for my kid is a job 2 and it has the sliding visors.

If you do the swap, get the clips for the job 2 visors too. The rod is a larger dia than the earlier ones and won't fit in the pre job 2 clips.
