Replace The Broken Sun Visor Mount on a Subaru BR-Z, Scion FR-S or Toyota GT86
If you use your sun visors a lot, this is just going to happen - there are no 2 ways around it.
Mine? I was moving the car from one side of the driveway to the other, I flipped the sun visor down so I could remove the window shade out of the way and the plastic just cracked and came apart. Super lame.
Anyway, I see a lot of these popping up on the forums, so it looks like it's a pretty common thing for all the related Subaru/Toyota/Scion cars. It doesn't require them to be mis-treated or anything, they just sort of give up randomly.
The crappy thing is you cannot just buy the little plastic piece - you'll need to buy a whole new visor.

Remove The Broken Visor
Flip the visor down so you can access both screws.
Remove the 2 Screws holding the visor to the car.
Once removed, the visor will fall down.
If your car has lighted mirrors, there will be a wire and connector. Disconnect it now.

Install your new visor by lining up the mount and screwing it back in.
