Window Rain Deflectors

Starting to look around at these - has anyone had any experience with adding Window Rain Deflectors? What the functional and long term differences are between in channel and exterior only models? Any gotcha's for installation and care?

I really like the idea of being able to crack the windows slightly without worrying about if it rains - or even also when you need some fresh air and it is raining =P

Thanks!

Not on my Compass yet, but I have them on my project truck... They are excellent for ventilation when you live someplace with unpredictable weather, like here in Michigan. Definitely help get rid of at least a little heat in the summer without worrying about stray rain. And like you said, not bad for driving in the rain. (My truck is 47 years old, no A/C.)
I'll be keeping an eye on your post, I'm thinking about a set for my Compass, too.

exactly what I am thinking of doing - are those in channel ones on the truck? Trying to understand the difference before I order - found some on Amazon and on Weathertech but did not find any on my dealer parts site for OEM.

Mine are not in-channel. Most of thenewer ones either go into the channel OR they attach to the doors via double stick tape.

Hi everyone,
We carry 3 window deflector options for the 2017 Compass. As for the installation types, we carry both in-channel and ones that attach with the double-sided 3M tape. Both installation methods will hold the deflectors in place, so it is pretty much up to you to decide, what kind of installation works better for you. You can follow the link below to see the deflectors we carry:

She is making a final decision hopefully this weekend lol - there were a lot of good tips in those documents CARiD appreciate the info!

We may finally end up on external - but she is still doing her due diligence on effects of the tape on her finish and so on. We actually went from fully engaged to change it to making certain it was right as originally she had hoped the in channel options did not require adhesive but it seems they always say MAY have but never commit to having or not.

Once she decides we will see!

Thanks again to CARiD!

I have in channel window deflectors on my 2017(first gen) Compass. In my opinion, I believe the in channels look better because they look like a part of a car and arenít sitting on the outside of the window like the tape ons. You also donít have to worry about the in channels popping off down the road when the tape wears off.

Thanks for the pic! Did you install them yourself or did you have someone do the work for you? Do you know if they had adhesives also or just press in fit?

I have been on business travel this past week but will be home later today - will show the better half the pics and discuss - thanks!!!

They are the weathertech deflectors. They also have adhesive on the lip that goes up into the window. You just roll the windows down and press them in. Installed myself and took around 5-10 minutes total.

In channel is the only way to go IMO they look so much better. Now if someone just made them for the 2nd Generation Compass.
