I had the same problem. the small piece of plastic that holds the post breaks. This is a very poor design! I trimmed away some of the plastic near the top of the post, slid a washer down the post and folded back the top of the posts. I wish I could add a picture to this post. does anyone know how to do that? You will have to cut and then re-solder the wires for the light switch.

You can park the photo at an image hosting site like Flickr or Tinypic.com. Then click the IMG button and paste the URL of the photo there and click the IMG button again to close the "code".
Or you can just post the link to the photo on the hosting site.

Hi Roscoe33, did you ever get a chance to post your image? Here's a photo of the broken visor bit from my Santa Fe that I posted on Hyundai-Forums.com:

Hi all, Let me know if you were able to get the picture link. "Link title" above. I'm glad to say the fix is still working fine. We now have a problem with the gas gage. (another quality design problem). Light keeps coming on when tank is half filled.

Yes, as Steve replied, the link worked and I've copied your photo to my PicasaWeb account so I could link directly to it and have the photo appear inline. I will try that fix myself, and if that fails, I got a note from a member of the Hyundai Forum, to find a 2008/2009 version of the visor from a used parts dealer (i.e. scrap yard), here's that thread: 2007 sante-fe-sun-visor-broken if you're interested. I'll post your photo there so that other Santa Fe owners with the problem can try it too. Thanks!
