Would the G6's sunvisors fit in our 99+ grand ams?? i only want them because they have the extender and it annoys the hell outta me when i need it the most and i don't have one.

what in the hell did that have to do with her question? *sigh*

and katie, no idea. i would imagine all you need to know is the size of the screw that holds it, may very well be an easy swap. but then again, knowing gm, it probably won't..

Sorry! Not mention heated leather,remote start, onstar, side airbags.

Katie my G6 visors seem like they are smaller! I haven't rode in a grand am since I traded in last December!

Why bother with a G6 visor swap? Just get some cardboard and duct tape it to the original visor :p

It'd be nice to swap 'em.

My GF always complains that the passenger side doesn't have a mirror.

My sun visor has two Phillips head screws holding it on. Take yours off and hold it up next to the G6 visor. If it looks similar in length and screw placement, take the G6 visor off and try it in your GA.

Why? Do OTHER Grand Ams come with Passenger side vanity mirrors?

Is that like a GT1 option or something?

yeah they do. my visor doest extend though. i mean i can flip it to the side but there isnt an attachment that i can extend. also, i bet you dont have a lock on your glove box.

SikMindz

None came with "attachments" that extend. But for the msot part you should be able to pull the visor out further along the metal rod that it's attached to the headliner by.

Are the G6 visors lighted? I'd try a swap and wiring hack if I could get a lighted pass. side visor.

What happens if you hit the lock button 5 times??? I haven't driven my car in like 3 months....

lone_wolf025

It either sets up the locks into select program mode or it just beeps at you a bunch of times. I can't remember...

SikMindz
10-06-2006, 11:08 AM
Wrong. Just try it. I can promise that nothing bad will happen but it's a pretty cool little feature.

lone_wolf025
10-06-2006, 12:06 PM
I did. It just beeped at me a bunch of times and I was too bored to keep messing with it...

Bouchie11982
10-06-2006, 02:58 PM
correct me if im wrong Sik but doesn't it change the beeps?? like how many times it beeps?

lone_wolf025
10-06-2006, 03:11 PM
Dunno. All I know is that if you hit the lock button once it beeps three times and locks the doors a few seconds later. I got the impression that it was just a few of those beeps cascading over to the next button press.

mmm.. I'll have to try on my visor when I get out of work. I belive I try one time and I couldnt get it to slide out. Maybe with some WD40 will slide out :)

Maybe is an early model that can slide the visor. I do have vanity mirror on the passenger side.

Yup GM screwed us big time. They cut out a lot of small things that may seem trivial, but make a difference overall. They omitted things like the cargo net, cruise control light, lumbar seat, and no vanity mirror on the passenger side just to name a few. I mean, who the heck is going to do their makeup while driving?

I was lucky with my visor. My fiance's mom was trading in her GA, so I swapped mine out for her's with a mirror.

I wish our seats had lumbar support...it makes those long drives soo much more bearable. Heck I'm even considering looking into modding the stock seats or just getting new ones that have lumbar...hmm maybe the G6 has it?
