Weathertech visors help.

I just installed my weathertech visors today, but when I rolled the windows up, the window sort of hits the rear lower part of the visor, the rear lower part that bends in a bit. Did anyone have this problem? Also on my passenger side window, it does the same, and my pass window motor is really weak so once the window hits the visor part, it just stops so I have to pull the window up with my hand. On my drivers side, once the window hit the visor part, it rolls back up with no problem.

I also read on the instructions that I should let the windows rolled up for 12 hours, which I am doing., maybe that way it would sorta mold the visors in place?

Did anyone experience this problem?

I'm pretty sure its on good, when I try to wiggle the visors, its really stiff. But is it normal when the windows roll up that it hits the rear bottom part of the visor?

It hits it a little bit, but it doesn't cause any kind of problem to me. The window slides right past it. Try cleaning your window runs with silicone spray and retrying. spray it up and down both sides and down into the door. If your pass side window motor is weak anyway it might not work on that side but try spraying it anyway. The silicone will cause less resistance and will help the motor out.

So, I just spray silicone spray on the whole window so it would lubricate it so slide past through the visor a bit more better? Do you have a type of spray brand in mind?

Re: Weathertech visors help.

Umm, I think I use 3M brand silicone spray but any brand should work. And No don't spray silicone on the WHOLE window. Just in the window run (or the tracks that the window slide on on both sides.) The can should come with a straw adapter. Just aim the straw and spray down the tracks to get the lower section and they spay all the way up to where the visors are. You should actually take the visors back out and spray the top channel where it goes in to also. Hope it works out for you.

Re: Weathertech visors help.

So, I should spray the part where the window come out of, for instance, I should roll my windows all the way down, then spray down the part where the windows come out of?
