Hi all. I am loving my new wind but the one thing i am not a fan of are the sun visors.

Are they meant to hang down slightly or click in to place when not in use as mine hang slightly.

Not meant to hang down like that. 
Might be a spring has failed. Not sure how you would get to it.

Being an impatient soul I usually push them shut but have just allowed mine to close of their own accord & they do close properly albeit very slowly. Vaguely reminiscent of lowering our toilet seat!!

No you're not wrong. 

Pulling down the visor & then pushing it towards the screen manually is the norm to operate. Returning it to it's parked position is also manual except for the last inch or two when some sort of return damper takes over to prevent it closing with a clunk.

Pulling down the visor reveals a panel above it which I guess has to be prised out to access the visor's hinges &  attachment points

No joy you have to take the whole interior trim off to get behind. I was scared to break the trim as it is one large piece.

I will just let them hang a little for now.
