    Thread: Has anyone installed RAIN GUARDS / WINDOW DEFLECTORS I'd like to see pics

    1. 10-01-2012 07:53 PM #1
      like it says guys... I hate waking up in the morning and having "morning dew" on my car and i can drive with the windows down for the first 10 min because the water on the roof loves to pour into the windows
      i don't like the look of window deflectors but maybe a few pics could change my mind

      Edit: pics in the link have them.

      Didn't get them for the look, but I like it. The draw back is they squeak and rattle while they settle in. After they settle in they'll be better but will give ya a little rattle with the windows open when you hit bumps.

      yes they are, they fit great, no issues with them falling off or anything, windows roll up and down no problems. very very slight additional wind noise at fwy speeds... a bit tricky to install

      Those don't look bad at all even on a white car, and should look even better on a dark car (like my CSG R). I have window rain deflectors on my pickup and LOVE them, crack the windows while parked in the sun or driving in the rain, no problem, a real practical addition. Thanks.

      I purchased weather tech for my 3 door but haven't put them on yet.

      Will post pics after tints are dry! There are still little bubbles and no sun for them to bake in. Hopefully they'll be fine once the sun comes out here in NY.. in 60 degree weather

      In the meantime, anybody with a 3 door rocking deflectors?

      Here is a Rising Blue 2 door I found with the deflectors. NOT my car so I claim no rights to the picture.

      Thanks for the pic. I have a 3dr RB as well. I doesn't look bad at first glance but I still think the deflectors look more symmetrical on 4drs. I had these in my last car and they worked very well.

      Hey guys I did the installed the deflectors this weekend. Question though.. I rolled my windows down today and when I rolled them up, they were wet. I did wash my car yesterday and dried the windows.

      But since weather tech made a big disclaimer on installing product outside of weather lining.. I have to make sure I did it right.

      It probably is a normal situation caused by wet felt, but gotta make sure! Water can't seep thru interior door panel if these deflectors are installed incorrectly right?

      Does your car stay out side at night if so there if dew on my car every morning and when I roll my windows down then up there all wet also. That's one of the main reasons I want the rain guards. I'm hopefully ordering mine tis week. I'm praying they have them in stock. 👏

      Just to make sure, you must order the ones for the 2012 Golf/GTI right? I don't see an option for a 2013 R

      Thanks for the replies. I do remember that happening in my old car. Just had to make sure. Hardly happens when u roll down dry windows and have it come up wet. Usually wet from rain when you roll down anyway.

      Are these hard to come by? They were in stock when I ordered. Should be universal fit for golf/gti

      Mine finally arrived on Friday. Took a long time to get them.

      They are made in Germany. Weathertech ones.





      I removed the labels by heating up the stickers with a heater gun, and then using Goof-off to get the adhesive material off.

      Looks clean on my car. I've been keeping the windows closed for now and parking outside to let the heat and pressure help with their fit...



      I'll take some better outdoor pics later...

      Mine just came in a few days ago as well. It had been so long since I ordered them I completely forgot they were coming. Hope they're not hard to install.

      During the hurricane, sand blew into the crevices btw the visors and the window. While I rolled windows up and down, the sand managed to scratch the glass. Its a really fine scratch but be careful after any storm. Hose down any debris that might be trapped btwn the visors before driving!

      Scratch was on the outside of the glass I assume ?
