The Nissan Sentra vent visor is a great addition to your car as it deflects rain or wind as you drive at high speeds with open windows. But like all things, your vent visor can get damaged and cause problems. To help you know some of the common problems and the appropriate troubleshooting tips, take note of these:
Having scratches on your windows is a common problem that is associated with in-channel vent visors. This happens every time the top end of the window makes contact with the vent visor. While polishing the scratches will make your window look smooth again, you can't, however, easily fix the layer of tint that peels off from too much friction. If you don't want the top end of the windows on your Sentra to get scratched or damaged in any way, you should install tape-on vent visors on your car instead.
If you don't regularly clean your car, your vent visors can get scuffed and form a layer of dirt. Although you would initially think of washing them with soapy water and polishing them to make the visors look good again, keep in mind that these visors are made of soft plastic, so you wouldn't want to sand them and apply too much pressure. You can, however, lightly polish them using an effective polishing compound from auto supply stores. Make sure, though, that this product will not haze your vent visors when exposed to sunlight.
A common problem for your tape-on vent visors is the stains and gunk left on your car's surface after you removed the visors. Because the vent visors use strong adhesive to keep them in place, some of its adhesive get left behind and stick out from your well-maintained car like a sore thumb. To remedy this, you have to really exert effort to get rid of them by washing them with soap and warm water and by gently scrubbing the areas involved. If this doesn't work, you can get a good-quality car stain or residue remover from auto supply stores. If you're not sure which to get, you can seek help from your dealer.
