I have seen some folks (on Ebay) that make decals that perfectly cover the air bag stickers.....but I'd be interested in hearing what other people have done !

I had mine off when I replaced the roof liner. If I recall there's only two screws in the mount on the swivel side. Don't over-tighten them when you put them back on. They are only threaded into the sheet metal frame inside the roof.

I thought about trying to remove the label when mine were off. I don't think it's possible without it looking like shit. The label looks like it was "melted" into the plastic of the visor. Just find the stickers to cover them like mentioned above. It will look better.

I sprayed other bumper stickers with plastic dip and stuck them over the labels.

We have a recall on them

Just a couple of screws pulls them off like said be careful to not over tighten them on install.

As far as taking the label off wait for a hot day and they might just start to peel off if you pick at them enough. You will eventually end up taking them off by PATIENTLY heating them up with a hair dryer. Switch from side to side because the plastic on the headliner will want to stretch. Don't let it get too hot.

Once they come off there might be the faintest shadow of where they were but a little Adams interior cleaner and then some conditioner and it looks fine.

Good Luck!

I just removed the labels on my visors about a hour ago. Take off the visors and then place a folded up paper towel that has been soaked with rubbing alcohol on them. Leave the paper towel like that for about a half hour, re-wetting it every 10 min. You then should be able to peel most of it off or just scrape it away with you finger nail. For the small amount of residue left over I used goo gone. You would never know there were labels there.

All this "remove the visors" is crap when it comes to removing the stickers. All you honestly have to do is take a hair dryer on low speed and run it over the sticker for a few seconds. This loosens the glue. Then peel up a corner with your finger nail, and get a good bite on it and peel it off with one slow pull. No need for chemicals, straining of the butt cheeks, AND ESPECIALLY REMOVING THE VISORS. Worked for me no problem, hopefully I didn't catch Ya too late!

I would love to remove mine. My 2012 V6 had them on there almost like they were part of the visor. But on my 2010 SS, they're already trying to peel away. I want to take it off, but I'm nervous it's going to create a mess. I'd rather look at the goofy sticker than a nasty sticker mess...

I remove stickers from guitars on a weekly basis [I'm a guitar tech], and depending on the finish, I have lots of chemicals and tricks to get stubborn sticker funk off. I'm just not sure about this plastic visor.
