The loudest rattle in my '99 comes from the sun visors. Specifically the little lids that cover the mirrors on the back of the visors. I'm thinking of gluing some little felt pads on the lids where they come in contact with the visors. Does anyone else have this problem and what are your thoughts on the solution.

Thanks.

This is an issue in mostly all SLs. It's due to the sun. You can put some oil, or end up changing them entirely like I did.

The mirror lid should have several felt pads already attached. Seems yours fell off and gluing replacements on would be a good idea.

Are these mirror lids available separately? One of mine broke off and is exposed every time I drive with the top down!!!

The mirror lids are part of an assembly which includes the mirror and is sold seperately for about $90 at the dealer.
