I installed my WeatherTech visors tonight and I like how they turned out.
After reading about some of the issues people had getting the adhesive on the back ones to stick I made sure to clean the inside of the window seal extensively and get them in position before setting them in place.
Received my WeatherTechside window shades last night and installed them this afternoon.
First off they look good and blend in nicely with the car.
I do have two problems with them.
As mentioned in the post above I also had trouble getting one of the rear shades to stay in place and it fell off onto the ground sticky side down and of course picked up a lot of ground dirt after rolling the window up and then down once. I cleaned it up and reinstalled, but I will need to obtain another glue strip to insure it does not go flying off when I roll the window down in the future.
I used the ignition key in the driver's door to open and close the windows during the install as this gave me immediate stop/start control of the front windows as opposed to the auto open/close function of the window switches.
All seemed to be working as desired after setting the shades in place. I tried operating the windows from the drivers seat switches. The windows roll up and then reverse immediately on both front windows. It seems the safety switch is hyper sensitive for the front windows. I've left the windows closed using the ignition switch to close them for now hoping the weather stripping will settle in and allow the windows to close as they should in a few days.
Has any one else run into a auto close problem with these shades and how did you remedy it?
Install looks great but I'm not sure it will be a useable upgrade at this point.
I too had this issue with the auto up. Be patient and let everything settle in. The gaskets should take a set with the extra pressure in a few days. Mine are working great now. If you still have an issue a little dry graphite spray on the visor where the window slides by could help.
As for the tape, most people don't know that just like an epoxy or any other adhesive tape has a curing time. With the rear windows closed for 24 hours the bond will have fully cured.
Just ran the car through the local car wash without any harmful outcome!
The Car Wash did tape down all four side window shades before washing without any request from me. It seems they are familiar with the product and practice a "Better safe than sorry" philospy, (They also tape down the rear window wiper and around the side view mirros).
Anywho, the CT is nice and clean for our 4 Day outing to Laughlin, NV this weekend.... Time to spend a little bit of our Children's inheritance!
