Has anyone bought and installed these , I'm looking for a quality set for my 2006 Rav4 limited . I'm a little worried about the in channel deflectors screwing up the power windows . All advice is welcome. John
nice!! 8) I had a F150 crew cab and the wind noise increased after the install.Quickdtoo said:Went on a 20 mile drive today, my 60yr old hearing isn't the best, but I think the deflectors reduce some of the wind noise, it's noticeably quieter, on the return trip I had a good 20mph headwind on the interstate, a brief sprint to 80mph and it was still much quieter than before. What a pleasant surprise!
good info RedRav ... mine should be arriving soon ... thanks!RedRav said:I just installed the weathertech deflectors & here's my experience-
You need to be careful installing the rears since there is thin tape as well as pressure holding them in. Push forward until they are fully seated and then pull out to let the tape adhere. One of mine is a wee bit off and can't be adjuted.
The drivers side front hits and the window reverses. I'll probably pull it out and chamfer the edge a little (thank goodness, no tape on the fronts).
My wife and I think they are a little louder than w/o with the window just a bit open. Same or quieter w/ the windows opened fully.
They look really nice and are well made (we got the dark ones)
