    Posted: 17 Apr 2014 at 6:43pm
The front passenger visor has airbag safety stickers on the front and even when it's folded on the back too, hence this warning is visible at all times. It's colors kindda catches the corner of my eye and irritates me so I have tried to peel off the one visible side but it's not just a normal stick -on , I have been contemplating cutting an exact sized carbon textured vinyl to cover it up, any ideas what else I can cover it with? Any smart small appliances would also be nice too.

PS: I have read that this warning sticker is not required by law to remain there , except when the vehicle came out the factory.

Yupo second vote for a hairdryer.... you could try a heat gun, but that might not end well Exclamation the sticker would be gone, but so might the sun visor

Had a look at mine before, it looks like its printed on directly onto the visor rather than a sticker.

No amount of heat will remove it... well... unless you melt the plastic that is!

I, too, was annoyed to find that these "stickers" are apparently not removable, and raised this with the dealer who supplied my new Qashqai on 1st Sept. They confirmed that they're permanently bonded to the visor and definitely not removable. Perhaps a left hand drive driver's visor would be a solution, but I guess that would be a tad costly!Wink

Lets hope that someone comes up with a d-i-y sticker the same colour as the visor to cover these up!

I have a parking permit about that size for my business allocated space.  It's laminated but so I don't forget to display it I double-sided-sticky-taped' it upside down to the driver's visor.  All I have to do then is flip the visor down when I park at work.

Result?

Two annoying visor stickers and I keep forgetting to flip it down anyway Clown LOL.
