Video Transcript for WeatherTech Easy-On Stone and Bug Shield Deflector Installation - 2018 Chevrolet Colorado

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Chevrolet Colorado Crew Cab, we're going to be installing the Weather Tech easy on stone and bug shield deflector. Part number WT50258. This Weather Tech bug shield is specifically designed to fit your 2015 and up Chevrolet Colorado.It's designed to protect your Colorado's hood from flying debris and bugs, which later lead to paint chips and bug stains. How it works is, it's going to redirect air flow up and around your Colorado, preventing impacts to your hood or windshield. It's scratch resistant, it's virtually indestructible and it will absorb impacts for large rocks.Not only is it going to protect your Colorado, but it's going to add style to your ride. It attaches underneath your hood with the included self tapping screws, so you can rest assure, it's not going to fly off during your travels.Now that we've gone over the features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed.

We've got some pre-assembly to do on our bug shield, before we move onto our Colorado. Let's go ahead and get started.We're going to be working with the two furthest most holes out on the end. We'll take one of our black clips, and we're going to be installing it in this direction. We'll need a black screw and a black washer. Put that on, once we line it up, it will be coming down through the top here.

Get it started. Then to finish it off, we'll need a Phillips head screwdriver. Once we get it nice and tight, we can repeat the same process on the other side.Once both black clips are installed, we can open up our hood on our Colorado. Now let's take our bug shield and put it in the position. What we want to do, is we want to center the two tabs here up with the hood latch.Once we've got our bug shield where we want, we can then mark out where our black clips are on the actual hood.

Now it doesn't need to be a large mark. This is just going to give us the position of where we need to put our protective film, so our clips do not scratch our hood. You can see I've already got a small mark on the inside, you'll want to do that same for the other side.We'll need to take our included alcohol swabs and clean the areas where each tab is. Each tab has some adhesive underneath of it, that way when we pull the paper, it will then be able to stick to the underside of the hood.Now for this specific tab, when we actually install it permanently, we will pull down on that weather seal and the tab will go underneath. That's going to be the same for this one down here.

So what we'll do is, we'll just take the alcohol swab, and just clean up that area on each tab.With everything cleaned, we can now remove the bug shield once more. Once we have it marked out, we need to remove a small bead of caulk underneath our hood here, that way the clip can easily slide in place. You can just take a razor blade, and cut out the area there. You don't need to cut out too much, just where your mark was.Now we can take our protective film, place it over the spot where we cut it out. We can repeat that process on the other side, and then pull off the adhesive paper, and permanently put it into position. We'll need to remember to put those tabs underneath the weather stripping here on each side. Just push it in place. When we get to our clips, we'll want to be sure and push those on. You'll have to apply a little bit of pressure, but they should just clip right in place. Just like that.Now we can take our remaining hardware, and put it in place. We'll take the plastic washer and the self tapping screw. We're going to go up into the underside of our hood. Then we can repeat the same process on down.With the bug shield installed, we can close our hood and see how it looks.The last step is to install our bump on's. All these are really going to do, is prevent the bug shield from coming in contact with our Colorado as we're driving on the road. We can spread these out evenly along the bug shield. You can go along, test out where it may come in contact, and then we can place our bump on's on the Colorado. Just like that. As you can see, rather than coming in contact with the hood, it's just going to come in contact with the bump on.Perfect.And that's going to complete our installation of the Weather Tech easy on stone and bug shield deflector. Part number WT50258, on our 2018 Chevrolet Colorado Crew Cab.

The ordering process is extremely easy, they ship fast and keep you updated through the entire process.only 4 days from order placement to shipping to actually receiving my item. Which also for and looks great on my Chevy Colorado.

I have purchased and used WeatherTech products in the past, always had good quality and concise installation instructions. I recently added the Stone and Bug deflector on my 2019 Colorado, it looks great. Having a new windshield installed because of a stone crack, hope to avoid these in the future.

Review from a similar Easy-On in Bug Deflector


I’ve owned six chevy trucks. My current trusted steed is a 2008, silverado 2500HD, ext cab, long box. I bought it new and now have 339,000 miles on her. I added this bug shield to offer more protection and grace. It worked! Love it.

Review from a similar Easy-On in Bug Deflector


Install went ok, some of the red plastic you pull off the adhesive broke off and would not come off. Hope it will not effect long term performance of bug shield.


Comments
It sounds like some of the red plastic that protects the adhesive was not removed. If that is the case, the guard may not stick to the vehicle as well as it should. I would carefully take a small razor blade to slide under the red plastic layer and pull it away from the adhesive. If you damaged or removed the adhesive then you can find some more adhesive tape at a local hardware or automotive store.

Installation was easy and after a year, including one Northern WI winter, its holding up well.

Review from a similar Easy-On in Bug Deflector


Weather Tech products are great fit and finish. Etrailer shipped my bug shield order out quickly and arrived undamaged. This is not my first order from Etrailer. I’ve bookmarked their web page and they are one of my vendors of choice when I need something for our RV.


Comments
After a year on the vehicle and a lengthy camping trip last season. The bug deflector still looks like new. I’ll also add I noticed my class C RV drives down the road better. I think because the deflector is causing less wind to build up under the front cap and windshield.

Review from a similar Easy-On in Bug Deflector


Great quality, good fit overall…BUT, once again WeatherTech is “cheaping out” on their fasteners! Those ridiculous plastic push pin type fasteners DO NOT inspire confidence at all…the etrailer installation video acknowledged this. Come on WeatherTech…these things are IMPORTANT!!

Review from a similar Easy-On in Bug Deflector


The deflector itself is of good quality but the mounting hardware (plastic) sucks and caused me to engineer my own fasteners.

I would NOT purchased from Weather Tech again and believe etrailer should stop selling their products… The provided (4) fasteners have what felt like plastic, very finely threaded, undersized screws. In order to install the fasteners you have to apply a significant amount of pressure to the screw head. Three of the four screws just slid into the fastener and did not enlarge the buried section of the fastener enough to secure the bug shield to the hood (to the point that the hood would not even latch because the bug shield was held on so loosely). I tried several other of my own fasteners with varied results. I finally found some screws that were about 2-3 times the diameter and had much more aggressive threads. I had to cut them down to size and file the ends smooth. When I applied pressure to these screws the fastener sunk to the correct depth and the screws were large enough to cause the buried portion to spread out and anchor the bug shield to the hood. Surprise! The hood now closed properly at this point and the shield felt like it was attached solidly. From start to finish I spent about two hours trying various fasteners. At one point I considered drilling new holes in the bug shield and using screws and washers to attach it, but I was so frustrated with the installation that I was strongly considering returning the product. I eventually put two and two together and figured out the issue was the provided incorrect size, plastic screws that weren't working. Once I replaced them with the thicker screw with larger threads it all came together.


Comments
I will have the manufacturer reach out to you.

Had this bug deflector for a year now. Very happy with it. Easy to install yourself using existing parts on the stock truck. Better than the adhesive only on other brands. Solid and looks great.

Another prefect fit with a WeatherTech product. Plastic fasteners are quick but seem flimsy. Hope they are more durable than they appear. Service from etrailer team perfect, as it always has been. Thanks.
