Vent visors

Does anyone know if there is a company that makes rain vents for our car? I'm talking about the smoked/black plastic things that attach above the door so when it's raining, you can crack the windows without water pouring in. Everytime it rains, if I open the window just an inch, water drips into the car and all over the door panel. I'm in the process of redoing the interior in leather and I really don't want it ruined.

I've tried Autoshade and a few others but no luck. I know it would look like @zz but I'm tired of drying off my door panel and window switch every time it rains.

Re: Vent visors

i doubt there is anything available, there is no frame. so there is nothing to attach it to.

Re: Vent visors

Most of them just stick to the outside with 3M tape and there are ones that mount inside the window frame, when the vehicle has that.

I pretty much gave up finding them. It wouldn't look right anyway.

Re: Vent visors

If you have a sunroof, try opening that slightly. I would take off the headliner and wrap the drain hoses with a zip tie though. Mine didn't seal from OEM. Every time it would get a little water in thier (open or just didn't seal 100%), the headliner would be a little wet.

Once you go rotary, you never go back.

Re: Vent visors

It's not the sunroof that is leaking. Nothing is "leaking" technically, it's just when it rains, the water runs off the roof just above the door and into the car. And if the window is cracked a little, making a right turn slings all the water to the left and it pours in.

I'll just live with it by not smoking in the car when it rains!

We don't have a frame around our windows. How would the door shut, without the window hitting these vent visors, if they were attached to the actual "a pillar" and roof?
You would have to have your window partially open to close the door, then have a remote device to roll up the window after closing the door. Not impossible, but not practical either.
Once again, this is all just my $.02
