It is normal. A window deflector does not stop air flow it just redirects it. It makes less air flow into the window but the same amount of air is still present it just goes in a different direction.Hi all
I have purchased from weather tech wind deflector but since I fixed it on my FJ I still hear air noise
Is this normal ?
I though it was suppose to make the care more quite
2007 FJ, I have broken and replaced three windshields in 3 years of ownership. All three of them had "running cracks" that developed from a star crack.
So, on this one, the fourth one, I got a got a huge star crack right in the middle-middle, after only one month of having been replaced!!! Yes each time the best quality glass according to my reputable windshield guy,
I quickly had a star crack guy fix it and it came with a guarantee,,,,,just sold the vehicle with that star crack, and it never grew to a running crack (about 6 months).
I must have brain damage cuz I recently purchased a new to me 2010 FJ, cuz I like the damn things so much, Just going to roll with if it happens again, but they are costing me 280.00 each. Anyone know if there is a better price?,,,,sorry if that has been answered in this thread I have not read through this post yet,, It just caught my eye and I had to vent a little bit!.
This new FJ that I have owned for about a month has 35K on it and the windshield only has small star chips,,,,
Maybe I am the bad luck guy that will make it happen again,,,yes I look ahead for trucks debris etc etc,
I went twenty or so years without cracking windshields and I use to think it was crazy how it always eemed to happen to others.
The only real thing that has changed for me, is that I do drive a lot slower and I am not in the "fast" lane nearly as often as I used to be. I used to always speed and I was always in the fast lane. Last five or so years I have slowed down and I am in the number 3 and 4 lanes a lot,,,I just move over and speed up 0to get out from behind the trucks/trailers etc.
Yep. Didn't read all 147 pages but....My windshield looks like I pissed off the neighborhood BB gun gang.
