BMW system 6 sunvisor

I've been using the system 6 helmet for a while now, and although I'm not too happy with it, it cost me an arm and a leg and I can't afford to replace it.
My problem is that the sunvisor mechanism has become stuck on one side and the lever arm only drops down on the one side. Has anyone else experienced this? And what did you do to rectify or repair it? Is it possible to take the helmet appart and repair it myself or will I need to take it to a dealer?
Any help much appreciated.

hello! I have the same problem and called SBW BMW dealer in Herts, they said there are no repair option and the warranty is out by a month so I will have to replace, as you said it cost an arm and a leg to buy : no fair I know but im still wondering if there is someone who would have come with a solution for this

Just to update I took the helmet apart and bent back the two cables on feeding the mechanism and put the whole thing back and it's all good

If not too much asking…how did you do it, did you have access to a video or manual? I stopped at the 3 screws close form the sliding mechanism before breaking something, which I'm good at…but since I'm getting older, I learned to ask advice…thank you for your help.

Take 4th screw on the rear of the slide and separate the housing. You will see two wires probably tangled. Straighten the wires and put some oil on the wires. Put everything back together. Done.
