Over time, sun visors can delaminate from years of constant exposure from the sun. The good news is that replacement is very easy and should take no more than an hour for both sides. In this article, I'll go over the steps involved with replacing the sun visors.

Left and Right Sides of Car: Move the sun visor towards the side of the car to gain access to the mounting arm.

Left and Right Sides of Car: Loosen and remove the Phillips head screw (green arrow) holding the base plate to the car. Pivot the base plate towards the rear of the car to allow removal.

Left and Right Sides of Car: You'll now need to pull the arm of the sun visor (green arrow) out of the base plate.

Left and Right Sides of Car: You'll now need to pull the arm of the sun visor (green arrow) out of the base plate. Use caution when ding so as you'll likely damage the wiring for the mirror light (purple arrow). Disconnect the leads for the light and attach them to the new sun visor. Installing the new sun visor is the reverse order of removal.
