Re: WINDOW DEFLECTOR OR WINDOW VENTVISORS

Wed Jul 13, 2016 4:40 pm

The Wellvisors are installed. Overall I was happy with the quality and ease of installation. All double sided tape and no clips like some of the instructions show. The package referred me to the website for installation instructions. However all the instructions were for specific vehicles. There were no specific directions for the Leaf..

I will say that the front corner of the tape was peeled. Hopefully it will hold up, I will know after a test drive with rain tomorrow afternoon.

Just got mine too, waiting for the temps to hit 20C before installing them.( Beat the post office strike)
I notice on the dry fit the middle seems drooped a bit (only the curved ones) , about 3/8 inch low where the trailing edges are perfect about 1/8 inch below frame , Were yours the same? Did you start with the strips at the front and work back and did you have to apply any pressure to "bend " the middle parts up.
All I got for a response from Wellvisors was to "start from the rear edge, while slowly peeling the tape,you have to "work" the edge of the visor to the door frame the visor will not break due to its flexible nature"
OK so if I do that will the pressure of bending it slightly loosen the adhesive and cause it not to stick or worse yet come off later? The 3M tape strip is only 1/4 inch wide.
Yours look pretty straight, just curious if you had the same problem.

I left the middle as it sat. Drooped in the middle.. I don't think it makes a difference. I sits natural. I agree about the thin tape. But it sticks well after you clean it.
I started at the front edge. But I saw that droop and it lines up perfectly at the rear of the front door.
