Kia Spectra Vent Visor
Three Usual Issues Caused by a Malfunctioning Kia Spectra Vent Visor
The vent visor of your Kia Spectra is an effective component that allows you to open the window when you want fresh air to enter inside your car. Aside from that, it can also increase the shade provided by your tinted windows. Over time, the vent visor of you sedan will wear down and show signs of malfunction. Before this happens, you should do some troubleshooting as soon as possible. Here's a list of some of the problems you might encounter:
Window doesn't completely close.
One problem you might encounter with the Kia Spectra vent visor is it prevents your car's window to completely close. This happens mostly with an in-channel vent visor since it is fitted directly into the window channel. If this frequently occurs, you fix it by removing the old tape on the vent visor and replacing it with a stronger adhesive. But before you do that, make sure that you have thoroughly removed the old tape, so the new adhesive can strongly hold. If this doesn't work, then you should replace your in-channel visor with a seamless window visor instead.
Vent visor is already loose and might fall off.
When you encounter this type of problem, the adhesive of the vent visor is probably wearing down or the visor was not glued properly. You can easily repair this problem by replacing the adhesive of the Kia Spectra vent visor. Remember to clean the area where you will stick the new adhesive thoroughly. Otherwise, the vent visor will not stick properly, and might move loose once again or even fly off the road and cause damage to other vehicles.
Water is dripping from the vent visor into the window.
If you suddenly noticed that water is already dripping from the vent visor while you're driving on a rainy day, then there's probably a crack on the visor's surface. What you need to do is to inspect the crack first and check if it is still repairable. You can use a spray adhesive to seal the crack and stop the leak. You should choose the adhesive that is safe to use on plastic or acrylic or whichever material your visor is made from. It will be easier if you remove the visor before using the spray, so you can apply the adhesive evenly.
