The 59 sun visors rely on the screw tension to hold them up. There is no bushing to help them grip. If you tighten the screw enough you are likely to snap the zinc casting. Catalogs do not sell a workable plastic insert. So I made one. I used the pop off, soft plastic protection seal from a water bottle (not a the screw on bottle cap). I cut the side wall and trimmed it to wrap tightly around the shaft of the visor arm. It does not go deep into the well past where the screw locks the arm, but rather only a 1/4 inch or so around the arm outside of the screw, but still inside the visor. Works great. Mind you I tried several plastic bottles to find one with adequate thickness and pliability.
