    Got my front two windows tinted today. 35%, it's whats legal, and I think it looks damn close to the factory rear tint.

    After I got home, I went to put my weathertech side window deflector back on on the drivers side. Well, I forgot you have to open the window first (which I cant do for 48 hours). I broke this part off. Do you think the deflector will still stay in place once I put it back in the right way? Or should I just buy new ones?

    Best case .... put them back in and see how they work.

    Worst case .... you'll have to replace them

    I know they say 24 hours .... I'm a little anal-retentive and I went a week.

    What are the temps going to be this weekend?

    Added extra awesomeness to its original awesomeness.
    Use Loctite plastic glue and your problem is solved. If money isno thing, buy new ones and offer up the old ones for Pay It Forward and they can glue em.

    Since they're in-channel if I'm not mistaking you'll never see that spot anyway and it looks like there's still enough material around it to get a secure fit.

    it will/should stay, i did the same when i got mine. opened the box, both fell out of the box before i could catch them and one broke just like that! havn't had a problem with it in the year or so i have had them on. and actually i ordered mine from autoanything.com and one of the rear ones flew off while driving one day, i emailed autoanything and told them what happened and a week later they had a FULL SET shipped to me free of charge :D so now i have 3 spares laying around haha
