Toyota Paseo Vent Visor

Three Simple Tips to Troubleshoot your Toyota Paseo Vent Visor

Made from high-quality acrylic materials, your Toyota Paseo's vent visor is designed to withstand all weather conditions to keep your window and your door protected. However, eventually, this protective accessory will also succumb to wear and tear. The visor itself might crack, the adhesives might weaken, which could cause it to fall off or dangle. It is good to know what problems to expect that are related to your vehicle's vent visor. Here are some troubleshooting tips that we thought you should know to keep your Toyota Paseo vent visor in good condition:

Cracked vent visor

This is a common problem of car owners that you would encounter sooner or later. If your vehicle is already old, it is already prone to cracking. Conduct a thorough visual inspection of your vent visor to know the degree of difficulty of repairing it or if it already needs to be replaced. Once you've located the crack, remove it from your vehicle carefully. Next, you can purchase a spray adhesive from your local auto parts store and start repairing your cracked vent visor. Simply spray on the damaged area of the visor and let it dry. After one to two hours of drying time, you can reinstall the vent visor to your car.

Window won't close

If your window won't close properly, check if the vent visor is hindering it to fully close. The vent visor could be already loose, and the adhesive won't keep it in place. When this happens, you need to replace the adhesives with new ones. Remove the vent visor carefully and clean the surface by ridding it of the worn-out adhesive. If you will not replace the adhesive, chances are, you might find yourself picking up your vent visor from the ground.

Broken vent visor

If your vent visor gets broken for any reason, you have to remove it immediately to avoid injury that could be caused by sharp parts. You can buy a piece of vent visor from auto parts stores, so you won't have to replace the other visors. But before you buy, check your vent visor's warranty. Maybe it is still within the warranty period.

  • Three Tips to Make your Toyota Paseo Vent Visor Last Longer 27 February 2013

    The vent visor of your Toyota Paseo is designed to help keep your car protected from rainwater. It is very easy to install and maintain. Since it is a must-have for all vehicles, maintaining it should also be part of your routine. Keeping it in good shape is very easy; you can follow our simple tips below on how to make your Toyota Paseo vent visor last longer than its usual service life:


    Clean it regularly.

    Like all other car components and accessories, nothing beats keeping the vent visor clean to make it more durable. Whenever you clean your car, take time to clean this part and its corners as well. Since most vent visors are made from durable and impact-resistant acrylic material, you can use a mild cleanser and a soft cloth to clean it. Do this regularly and be amazed on how long before it starts to look old and used.


    Repair a crack.

    If there is a crack on your vent visor, may it be due to wear and tear or a collision, then you should repair it immediately. You can use an adhesive spray that can seal cracks or leaks just by spraying it on the surface. Just make sure that the spray that you're going to use is mild enough for an acrylic vent visor. However, if the crack seems to be beyond repair, might as well replace it with a new one. Since it is easy to install, you can buy the kit and do the installation by yourself.


    Keep it secured in place.

    If you noticed that your vent visor has been falling from its place due to a worn-out adhesive, it will eventually fall off if you don't do something about it. You can replace the adhesive by buying a high-quality double-sided tape from any auto parts store. Make sure to clean the surface first before setting the new adhesive. This is to ensure that it will hold the visor properly in place. Ignoring a dangling visor would be a hassle to you, especially when you are opening your window. It would get in the way of the window and it could give a bad impression to you as a car owner.
