Default Sunglasses holder

Does anyone else have an issue with sunglasses holder ?
Mine won't stay up and it's partially blocking rear view mirror, frankly quite annoying ....

Any solutions ? I was thinking a tiny elastic band around the clip so it's spring returns to grasp the hook

Never had an issue with it and use it quite a lot in the summer months. It could do with being a little bigger though, not every pair of sunglasses fits in.
I'm sure if you dismantle the console unit, it will be obvious what part of the mechanism is broken.

Not had any issue with mine or seen any issues generally on other D4s.

Short term, blob of bluetac will keep it shut.

Long term, with it open you will find a torx screw, remove it and the whole overhead unit will pull down so you can try and resolve the issue
