Window Visor Vent Shades"

My new to me 2006 CC has the aftermarket "WINDOW VISOR VENT SHADES"
The vents have started to become loose. Any aftermarket glue to re-bond the shades.
Thanks for any help

I can't think of any aftermarket glue but my advice would be to rip those things off, remove any leftover glue stuff and then buy the shades that "pop" into the window cavity. No glue, no mess. I have had mine on 3 different trucks (Dodge) and they work great.

If you don't have the tool for removing the mount tape, the clean-up for new mounting tape is a bear. It is also easy to scar the plastic where the tape goes so it shows through.

Even with new vents the tape may not want to come off the door.

One of the easiest ways to remove the visor is, floss.

And then use WD40 to loosen the glue,....then all it will take is rubbing it off with a rag.

Remove the visors and buy a new one.Use a piece of wire and work it back and forth down the lenght of the visor where it is taped to the frame.A little slip solution helps lube it.

Next bust out the steamer and steam the acrylic tape and either pull it away or roll it with your thumb. I used to do this with the heat gun and had to wrap my thumb with tape to avoid a big blister. I also used to use solvent to get the glue of and it makes a big mess.
This way makes it alot easyer and alot faster.The steam keeps it moist and should save your thumb from blistering.

Steam sounds like a winner, heat gun takes a good level of skill to not take the paint.

If you don't mind if they fall off - ATF will eat, slowly, the foam and the glue. It is a mess, though. Degreaser takes the ATF off and more mounting tape for automotive use will stick them back on. Correctly applied it works. I like the looks of the snap ins better though

Can't beat the rotary rubber tool for taking stuff off , chuck it in the die grinder and heat old stuff but new comes right off, including some pinstripe and sign paint.
