    Default Jimny - no Passenger sun visor Mirror

    A small irritatiation that my wife reminds me of on longer trips is that the passenger sun visor has no mirror 😂

    This has been escalated to the no.1 priority.

    Before suspension. Roof rack. Tent. Food. Etc.

    Has anyone had any luck getting a visor with a mirror for the passenger side of their Jimny?

    Before I go buy a cheap mirror and stick or strap it on the existing mirror-less sun visor, I thought Iíd see if anyone has gotten hold of a LHD Jimny drivers sun visor with mirror?

    Or do you perhaps know if the visors from other Suzukiís can fit?

    Thanks in advance!

    Pre-2012 definitely had mirrors on both sides. Get a visor from Zook Spares.

    At this years Getaway show I found a company called Caracal Leather & Canvas. They make really nice canvas 'sleeves' for the sunvisor and the passenger one has the mirror - making my swambo very happy

    The other advantage is you gain a zipped pocket and a few straps to keep a torch, permits, or an emergency escape tool in case of rollover or accident.

    Awesome thanks guys.

    I will check out the sleeves out of interest, but I think I will probably just get a 2012 spare replacement from zook spares

    Appreciate the fix! Tick this off the list, an on to the real stuff now...

    Agree with Ocin, buy a R10 vanity mirror at the Crazy Plastics store and double side tape it onto the top of the visor.

    If you want to earn big brownie points with SWAMBO, try and buy a Jimny visor with a mirror that as closely as possible colour matches the driver side. Unless it is a really ridiculous price.

    A R10 mirror stuck on with double sided tape will work just as well, but it sends the wrong message. Especially if you want to do fancy mods to the vehicle.

    Rather buy from zook spares. Its cheap and I bet you have the cash if you are already hinting doing upgrades.

    A R10 mirror in a R250k + car is like having the latest phone but a cheap used cover for it.
