Been looking for a good ICE forum for a while..
the strange problem i'm having is:
Basically i recently bought 2x 8" tft sunvisors
same as ( http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...779527466&rd=1 )
And when i came to install them i found the black end (think its SVHS) wont fit through the nut so i cant bolt them on?
Maybe me missing something obvious...
Please help its drivin me wild
For pics of which i mean, go on ebay link and look at pic of all accessories..
I must be missin something as the guys sells hundreds n hundreds of em...

damn fort i had a reply
I think you have two solutions.Originally Posted by corsa-i-can
You can notch the nut, basically, dremel or grind out a notch on the nut so that you can slip the cable into the center hole. The problem with this, of course, is that if the cable is thick, the notch will be pretty big, and will seriously weaken the nut, so that you might have problems with the nut "stretching" and not holding the threads really well.
Another solution would be to cut the cable, and then reconnect the wires once you got them thru the nut. OR open the screen, and unsolder the cable, feed it through the nut, and then resolder the connections on the screen.
i thought of cutting the cable, or getting local ICE place to, cos i arent that good with wires, but i just dont understand what everybody else is doing with them, loads sell daily...
What about the other idea I had?
Here is a picture, to help you conceptualize.
By how much is it not fitting through the nut? Maybe just shave a small amount of rubber off of the svid connector?
Post some pictures and see if anybody can come up with an alternative... I'm having a hard time figuring out WHY they'd send you mounting stuff that can't accomodate the cables that they know have to fit through them, so maybe they just sent you the wrong hardware?
From the pics on the ebay page it looks like it's a thick cable with a pseudo-svideo connector that splits into the yellow (video) and white (audio? mono if so?) cables... plus the 2 wires for sound. Cutting the cable might be a bear, because you're then dealing with having to re-attach all that wiring and making it look clean. It's doable though... I guess it depends on how much work you have to do.
Wiredwrx, I'm not entirely sure, but I think the nut is part of the bracket to hold the visor onto the headliner/roof... so it might not be possible to take out a notch in order to fit the cable through. One of the pictures shows this, but I don't know if you can remove the nut from the bracket or something...
I would be more apt to taking the sunvisor apart and if possible unplugging the cable from the circuit board, cutting the nut sounds like a drastic measure
