Has anyone found a source for in-channel wind deflectors for the side windows? I've found the external type but prefer in-channel.
No, they just slide into the channel and are secured with a plastic clip. There are YouTube videos from Madness showing how to install them. Seems pretty simple and I plan on ordering a pair in the near future.Do they use tape on the deflectors I'm leasing my Renegade so I can't use tape at all.
Has anyone found in channel style window air deflectors? All the ones I seem to find stick on the outside.
I would think the in channel deflectors would be better for the reasons you mentiond plus one more, it is my understanding that the surface on the vehicle should be roughed up for better adhesion. I remember seeing an install video of stick on deflectors where the installer used sandpaper on the rubber part of the window frame where the deflector was to be mounted.Thanks, dgr401! In the long run and ownership of the vehicle, would stick-ons be less desirable? I would surmise in-channel deflectors would be the best option since they could be removed with no glue residue from the stick-ons at turn-in/trade in case the potential buyer dislikes them?
Follow natural element stress over time (sun, wind, car washes, etc.), it would seem the glue goes to goo and no do. Thoughts, anybody else?
I don't know what they would do regarding noise. I have had pick-up trucks with them and didn't notice any difference with them. One of the complaints of the Renegade is wind noise so I cannot say one way or the other. Maybe someone that has them installed could chime in. Personally I am leaning toward the stick-on as I don't like the ones that go down the A pillar. I hope to decide shortly, I have been putting it off.dgr401, do you think these in-channel deflectors have any significant effect of minimizing high wind noise before and after installation? For clarity for your response, this is with the windows fully closed and deflectors installed.
