    Default Interior fittings, hand straps, hangers, etc.

    On our 85 Vanagon the strap next to the sliding door broke off. I can't see how it is attached so I can install another strap.

    Thanks Lono

    You tap the plastic top (coat hook) upwards with a piece of wood and a plastic mallet. It will slide up, clearing the Phillips head screws. The strap is sandwiched between a bracket and a plate that is then covered by the slide-over plastic hook.

    Default Sagging Visors

    I recently purchased a 87 Westy that I've been using for a daily driver for the past month and restoring on weekends. The driver and passenger sun visor "default" trailing end position is about 2" below the headliner. I can push the passenger side up and against the headliner and it will remain there for a few minutes, but the driver side just immediately sags down.

    I've take the visors off to see it can be tightened in some way but I didn't see any means of adjustment. I noted during this process that the plastic around the mounting screws was extremely brittle as well. The clips seem tight -- I thought about wrapping them with tape to help but I do not feel they are the cause of the problem.

    Can anyone share a tip that would help tighten up the visors?

    Thanks in advance.
