No instructions included of course, but you can get the PDF's from College Hills Honda. Start to finish it took maybe 15 minutes. Quick and easy job.

I typically go with OEM accessories, unless they don't make it, as was the case with my front seat covers. Yeah, it's a lot of screws but it does feel very solidly attached. Granted, the two outermost screws on either end are attached to a bracket that is in turn attached to the surface of the hood by adhesive. Sill though, the force of the wind I believe only serves to push it against the hood anyway sot he adhesive isn't fighting some opposing force.

I drove up to college hills honda recently and bought the deflector to install on my '18 CR-V. Love the look of it and haven't noticed anything unusual with it so far. Seems to be pretty snug too, no movement if I try to wiggle it a little.

You can look at Weathertech or AVS. I installed an AVS Aeroskin that lays flat on the hood. Installed one on my 2015 Accord and have no problems. I posted pictures in a prior thread regarding this topic.

When and if they still exist Perfect fit for Honda was what I used Gen 1, gen II. they fastened on as well 3M clear stick on beads under the top to be applied with 3M protective tape, Kept the weather stripping under the hood on.

Oxidation and age lasted past the 5-year date, and 8 years replaced with another one not Perfect fit as they went out.
My problem was when it gets brittle after age, the deflector flew off in pieces. so be careful in cold weather.

I rather have it screws on, you never know the pressure involved while riding

I don't care for the look of the Honda Deflector. I installed an AVS Areoskin that lays flat with 3M tape. My almost 7 year old Accord has an Aeroskin and it is in great condition. The guys at the hand wash place used a power washer and blew off the AVS tap on the skin but makes no difference.

I posted pictures of the one I installed on a prior thread.

(y) The use of surface skins like this are superior to the old mechanical deflectors, in my view.

  • Protects hood
  • Modern, flush-mounted design for seamless looks and perfect fit
  • Low-profile aerodynamic design protects your hood from rocks and bugs
  • Available in acrylic Smoke or Chrome finish
  • Easy installation with included 3M automotive tape - no drilling!
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty

I have the OEM on for 3.5 yrs now. No problem at all. There were no aftermarket when I bought since it was a new model. I have used AVS in the past and had no problem w/ them. Buy the one you thinks looks best. Very happy w/ my Oem.
