Anyone know if an extendable sun visor is available to replace a fixed one as provided on the Tour X in order to block the sun from the front side windows? Maybe the sport version might have one?

I was surprised by this myself, especially since our owner manuals clearly depict a visor that extends. The author's favorite phrase in our manuals is "If equipped..."

I've been looking at part numbers to determine commonality and have not found anything so far. The universal fix involves cardboard and rubber bands. Very high tech.

My 2013 LaCross had extendable visors. Here is a picture (not of mine) that shows the visor. It would take a lot of research to see if it would fit the Tour X especially the mounting flange. It is also not an easy job to wire in for the light as there is a good chance of causing a short if the wires are pinched when installing. This happened to me when I had a Honda roof liner replaced and the shop shorted the wires out when reinstalling the visors.

"If equipped" is something I've noticed being ubiquitous in the manual, as if all of the Regal models (incl. Insignia) around the world are settled with one book. And the manual in the mobile app doesn't even work

My '03 Element EX (top-line) had extendable, large visors. Oddly, my '07 Acura RDX Tech (top line) did not. Always annoyed me. Damn bean counters. I'll pay for it, just let me have it already.

Has anyone found a decent replacement (screws/headliner close color match)? I don't care about the lights and mirror, just give me an extendable visor. My 2010 LaCross had them and it was great.

As mentioned, someone from the Facebook group did a swap from an Envision. Looks like it came that way to me. He did mention is was not a fun install.

I gave up looking for an extendable visor option assuming that perhaps it was not the bean counters but the side airbag installed in the B pillar was the reason for eliminating the sliding visor. I'm not sure where the airbag was located on my old 2013 Lacross...but maybe in the driver's seatback?

Think I'll go with a small suction cup mounted screen shade that will fit nicely in the door pocket when not in use.
