Can they damage the window gasket or window motor? I also dislike stick on rain guards for outside installation because of the 3M double sided tape. Do you have any experience with the in channel ones and is it OK with the CRV?

I've had Weathertech window deflectors on my last three CR-Vs - 1999 EX, 2006 EX, and they were one of the first accessories I ordered for my 2014 EX.

I've never had a problem with them, although once they were installed I did not remove them.
And they do allow you to open the windows slightly when it's raining.

But...do not leave your windows open when it snows, as the snow will blow in "under" the deflectors, which makes a mess to clean up. :BigGrin:

I was looking at those Weathertechs. Do you roll the windows all the way up?

At night my CR-V is parked outside, so yes.
And at this time of year, mostly yes, and the temps here are still a bit cool.
Once it warms up some I'll be cracking the windows most of the time.

Weathertech does not make them for the Gen 5 CR-V.
Um, ok, it is actually for a 3rd gen I am getting them for. I know...this belongs in that other sub forum

Is your worry that the tape will fail? I had some stick-ons on my S10 P/U that I installed in 2003/04, and they were both firmly in place when I sold it this year.

I am not concerned about the deflector. I care about the car door and the damage it could make to the window seals and the motor.

1991 non-Honda vehicle - installed Weathertech's shortly after purchase. No window seal problems when I sold it in 1999 (8 years installed, non-power windows).
1999 CR-V - installed Weathertech's about 9 months after purchase. No window seal or motor problems when I sold it in 2009 (10 years installed).
2006 CR-V - installed Weathertech's after purchased used in 2009. No window seal or motor problems when traded in in 2014 (5 years installed).
2014 CR-V - installed Weathertech's after purchased new in late 2014. No window seal or motor problems so far (3.5 years installed).

Weathertech does not make them for the Gen 5 CR-V.
Im still waiting for them and after 3 direct inquiries and well over 500,000 sold no satisfactory answer on why was given.................
I installed the Lund Elites on my 2018 and they fit but did not stay in place. I returned them. The reviews on the AVS ventshades are that they are problematic. I have had in channel ventshades on 2 vehicles and jad no problems. One set I had on my Equinox for 8 years. Want to see what Weathertech comes out with (hopefully) for the 2018 CRv. I have Weathertechs on my 2015 Accord and had a rear tab break in a few months. I was given a whole new set and have had no problems.
