Your New Rosen Sunvisor System is very easy to install but needs a few tools to complete the job.
1) A short Phillips tip screwdriver, 2) Allen wrenches (included in installation package), 3) A 3/16 drill,
4) A 3/8 drill (for some models) to enlarge the trim hole for the visor mounting stud, 5) A tool to
remove the ‘C’ clips on the trim of some models, 6) A 5/16” open end wrench, 7) A 3/4” open end
Remove the original visors from your aircraft with a Phillips tip screwdriver.
Starting on the pilot’s side remove the trim
exposing the existing visor mounting flange.
Note: All illustrations are of the pilot’s side.
Position the New Bracket Support on the Existing
Lock-Nut and Flange and restrain in this position
with a #10-32 screw as shown.
NOTE: The beveled edges mark the upper end
of the bracket.
Use the slot to provide the best fit condition
between the New Support Bracket and the “C”
Channel Flange.
Mark the center of the upper bracket flange slot on the structural channel flange. Remove the
temporarily installed bracket.
Check behind the structural channel flange to clear any wiring or other materials that may be
disturbed. Reposition anything that may be damaged. If necessary add additional protection for any
wiring in the vicinity of the fastener.

Drill a 3/16” diameter hole at the marked location in the channel flange. Be careful not to penetrate
the structural outer surface.
Using the #8-32 X ¾ Hex Head Cap Screw, #8 washer,
and #8-32 Ny-Lock nut install the bracket as shown.
Check the alignment of the bottom flange slot in
relationship to the existing mounting flange hole and
lock nut prior to tightening the cap screw fastener on the
new bracket support. Use the 11/32 closed end
tightening wrench (provided) to tighten the screw/nut.
Fit the plastic cap over the nyloc nut to protect the
Remove the Rosen mounting stud and Locking Washer from the hardware packet and verify the
raised internal threaded section of the washer fits into the trim clearance hole prior to installing the
Use a 3/8 inch drill to enlarge the hole in the trim and
reinstall the trim covering the visor mounting bracket you
have just prepared.
Screw the Locking Washer onto the Mounting Stud until
the flat surface of the washer is in contact with the base
of the stud. Install the Mounting Stud through the trim
hole and new bracket into the original mounting nut.
Tighten the stud using a 5/16 open end wrench. Be sure
the raised diameter of the locking washer is located
through the hole in the Trim Piece. After the stud is
tightened use a ¾” open end wrench to tighten the
locking washer against the bracket system.
Install the Rosen Visor Assemblies as appropriate.
When installed the red tensioning knob should be towards the windscreen. The Visor mounting hole
is pre-lubricated from the factory so you may need to wipe off the excess grease when installed.
Repeat this procedure for the co-pilot’s side.
Place the FAA STC and AML (if appropriate) in the Aircraft Maintenance Log and make an installation
entry in the Log.
Congratulations, you have now completed the installation procedure.
Your new Rosen Sunvisor System has been designed to cover all those areas the factory system
missed, especially the complete side of the face. For the first time you will be able to see your traffic
while still cutting the suns glare reducing pilot fatigue.

For continued airworthiness (Ground maintenance only)
Do not use the visor to try to shield the cockpit from heat while parked on the ramp for extended
times. Excessive heat buildup in the lens can cause damage.
Adjust the tension on the red visor slide knob so the visor can be slid using the red knob. This should
be tight enough that the visor will not slide during take-off, landing or maneuvering.
Adjust the tension on all the pivot points with the provided Hex Keys so that they can be moved freely
but not loosely. The tension should support the weight of the visor in the fully extended position
without drooping.
Tension the visor ‘flip up’ pivot so that it will support the visor when rotated into the stow position.
Periodically check and re-tension the visor pivots.
Periodically clean the visor lens with a mild detergent or other Aircraft Approved Windscreen cleaning
solution and a soft lint free cloth. Do not use abrasive cleaners or glass cleaners.
