Jdm Window Visors - Help Needed


Recommended Posts

Has anyone purchased and fitted window visors like this? http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/231390779560

The instructions are all Japanese, and I'm not exactly clear where (or which way up) the clips go, and the order of fixing them.

Anyone with an English set of instructions for JDM window visors, or have fitted them successfully? I know I seen a few pics of cars with visors fitted on the forum. I have searched Youtube for a video, but nothing gives me the detail of the clips and how to attach them.

Cheers, any help would be appreciated. Doesn't sound like much, but I don't want to trash the tape, or my window seals fitting them.

Don't buy them, biggest rip off on eBay. These type of shields are made of recycled material with toxic color. It has so much impurities in the acrylic that u will never get a crystal sharp view. Only worth $20, don't buy them as they are wayyy too cheap for any Lexus !

Thanks Wind Chaser, your comments are noted.

Now that I do have the visors, I have managed to fit the passenger rear, but the drivers visor needs to sit too low, which makes it too short. If it sits flush with the top of the window frame, the length is right, but the clips don't have anywhere to go.

I know these may not be magnificent quality, but I would appreciate any advice on how to fix the clips, and at what height the visors need to go. Anyone with visors of any type like to post or send me a couple of close-up pics, showing exactly where the visors sit in relation to the window frame?

It's OK, the front was never going to line up with the rear that I had already put on, too low, because of the clips, so it's off now, with the tape not reusable.

Put this one down to experience.

I would like to say that I bought a set of the exact same guy one year ago. They fit fine and I feel that you are putting this seller down for something he sells that is actually a great quality product.

Oddzee, I'm not putting the seller down, just saying that the clips don't fit the (my) window frames.

If you could PM me with pics of how the clips fit, that would be great.

Also, on another note, does anyone know where I can buy just the super-sticky doub;e-sided tape that's used for fitting external car trim like this? i though I might give the visors another go, and just try fixing with the tape only, and not worrying about the clips.

I used that tape on the missus laser to hold her full size visors. Been there for 3months now and had no problem.

Double the tape up for your visors as it needs to be mounted further out for the clips to work.

Just remember to align visor and hold from the top with masking tape. Pull one bit of the tape plastic and push each part bit by bit.

I'll get pics for you later this arvo when I finish work. Better yet PM me your phone number and i'll text them to you,

Thanks for the pics Oddzee

With a little extra tape, as suggested, I have all the visors fixed and aligned, including the clips as per your pics.

I have meters of a couple of different types of tape if anyone in Adelaide needs some.

Hey guys. I just bought what appears to be the same visors - and I too am having a lot of trouble attaching the clips to the visors - they appear to be too wide?

Is somebody able to send me the photos of how they go on?
