Who Has Sliding Extensions on Their Sun Visors?

This topic came up briefly in a thread comparing the Altima to the Accord and I found out that another EX-L owner has the sliding extensions on their sun visors but I don't have them on my EX-L.

So, I was just wondering if people could chime in by giving their trim level and whether or not they have the sliding extensions.

What's odd is that my 2003 Accord LX (which is a middle trim level) did have them but my 2013 Accord EX-L (which is a higher trim level) does not. And why do some 2013 EX-L's get them and some don't?

Maybe it's like the tires...some people get the Michelins and some get the Goodyears.

Bummer, because I really enjoyed those sliding extensions on my 2003 LX. Funny how such a little part (which probably costs next to nothing) can add so much value to the car and that it's not part of all the EX-L trim lines.

My 2013 EXL V6 coupe has sliding sunvisors. They are not extensions like in earlier generations. The entire visor slides on the mount. I think a lot of people don't realize that they work this way. I would be very surprised if all the '13s weren't this way.

Can one of you post a pic with one. I've searched for different part numbers but for some reason I can only find:

I won't be home to take a pic till tomorrow night, but just pull on your visor. It slides on the mounting rail.

Thanks...I will try this tonight on the way home from work. I'm the OP and mine just look like a standard visor that doesn't slide at all. I'm going to call my dealer to see how much the ones with sliding visors cost if mine don't slide on the mounting rail itself.

Wow, interesting..."DreamAce" has them on a Sport 6 MT but "willph" does not have them on an EX-L V6.

Makes no sense at all...

The whole visor should just slide on the rail like others have said. It doesn't "look" like it will, but if you unlatch it and pull the whole thing to right it should just slide. It's been like that off and on across the Accord's generations. I remember back in the day, my mom's 4th gen had the sliders, but then my 6th gen had the little sliding flaps, then the 7th and 8th went back to the whole visor sliding on the rail.

What type of extension are we referring to?
My Sonata has an actual plastic piece and I slide out as an extension (as does the Altima).

My Accord does not have an extension piece but the entire sunvisor can slide on the arm but its really tight. Just have to pull it out a little harder.

I'm the OP and I'm referring to the little plastic piece that's about the size of an index card and it slides out of a "pocket" within the visor itself. That was what I had on my 2003 LX Accord.

But I will DEFINITELY try to see if my entire sun visor will slide on its arm later today on the way home from work (can't really get to my car at the moment but thanks a million for this tip)!

From 2003 and onward Accords have had the sliding visors rather than an a plastic flaps that slides out. This way when you need to block sun out from the side you can pull it down, swing it around, and pull it into place in one motion. In comparison the flaps require two motions as you have to put the visor in place then pull the slider out.
