Today we are going to install part number P580178 from Putco, and we are going to install this on a 2009 Dodge Ram full-size pickup. These vent visors will install in the channel with the window, and these will actually have a little bit of adhesive on them to help them stick to the inside of the channel of the door itself. The track that the vent visor fits into is right here, all the way down. And what happens is that the adhesive on the vent visor itself will actually attach to this inside edge on top up here, inside this edge right here. So before you peel the backing off the adhesive, it is a good idea to always do a test of it first. So let us put it right in the channel and just pop it into place. Then you have a good idea of where the adhesive sticks onto the weatherstripping here.
Now you know how it goes in place, take it back out. And on some vehicles - maybe some older vehicles - you may want to clean out that track that it fits into before you peel the backing off. Once you have the track cleaned out and you are comfortable how the vent visor installs, go ahead and peel off the cover for the adhesive. So let us go ahead and install it into place. Try to keep it pushed back into the channel as far as possible. Then bring it out so it adheres to the weatherstrip. And then what you want to do is roll the window up and down a few times and then leave it up for 24 hours, preferably in a warm environment. That way the vent visor can form to the window and the track of the window seal itself. We will repeat these same exact steps over on the passengers side. And there you have it for part number P580178 from Putco.
Today on our 2012 Dodge Quad cab Pickup well be installing the Putco element window channel visors, part number P580137. Starting here on the passenger side well go ahead and lower the window. We can go ahead and remove the adhesive cover. Starting next to the mirror down at the bottom near the window opening well put the visor into the window channel. Well go ahead and flex the visor so that we can get the opposite in into the window channel and then work the center into the window channel. Be advised that if the adhesive catches the window trim that youll need to go ahead and slide a flat bladed screwdriver or a trim panel tool in so that the window visor gets all the way up into the window channel.
We are going to be installing WeatherTech side window deflectors, part number WT80503. So, I am going to start by installing it here at the front, making sure that this piece is on the outside. We are going to the recessed areas and these are in channel visors. So we want the top sections, the thinned out portion, to go ahead and to sit inside the channel. And then with the front corner ed, we just actually want to go to t he rear section of the air deflector. When it is just sitting on top, it actually overlaps the door quite a bit. So what we are going to have to do is actually fold it down so that it can be ed into the channel. You can see there is quite a bit of flex in t he window visor. You want to make sure that you are not installing this in any weather that is under 50 degrees because that bending of the visor could actually crack the visor if it is not warm enough. 0:47
