i had them apart if you having trouble with that.
once you get them off, its pretty self explanatory, i worked a screw driver into the crease, starting from the area that had the bar through it, it basicly opens up like a book.

edit:
to get the visors off, you have to take a dull screw driver shaped object and gently pry the covers off going around the oval, (oval shaped peice that the visor swivels on)( the peices are pretty tough, but could break, i was more worried with bending them,) just becareful not to damage your headliner, once you have the oval cover off, you will see 2 phillips screws, remove those are your peachy.

what do you mean what to do about those? if you take the visor apart and remove the odl fabric those should fall out.. you can dye/paint them to match your new headlignr and then put them back in when the new fabric gets put on there....can tak pics of mine on monday when i get them back from the sewing shop... they had to take a few more days seeing if they could do them with silver thread like i want

NO NO NO

i have fabric -- i want to reuphoster my visors - yes i understand that i would just wrap the new fabric over the old - but some will be sticking out in the parts i posted a picture of - i want to take these 2 ends off to i can put the ends of the fabric under the plastic pieces - so when the plastic peices go back on - it will look like the fabric belongs there!

im not painting or spraying them - thats why i bought more fabric

That's your answer. ;) Then you put your new fabric over the gutted visor. :)
