Window Visors question

I went to the junkyard today looking for some newer ranger parts like maybe an edge chrome bumper or some 06 tails. I didn't find any of that of course but I did find a truck just like mine totaled that had just got brought it, it had some window visors on it and I thought about taking them but left and now I kind of want them. How do you go about removing them? They look like they mount under the window seal or something.. thanks

Pull them without breaking them then get some new double sided tape

yeah they typically just stick on. So be careful when you're pulling on them.

A good way to try and get them off without breaking them is bringing a piece of fishing line with you, and slip it under the corner of the visor and then in a back and forth sawing motion, work your way along the visor and that'll seperate the visor and the adhesive from the door.

Alright thanks guys I'll go and grab them tomorrow. Would glueing them back on keep them mounted? Seems that would be the case, or double sided tape as mentioned above..

Tape AND glue is always a failsafe.

That moldng tape works really good though, I had to use that on the door molding on my Cadillac and it was pretty strong.
