I have just fitted some wind deflectors to my car and I am just wondering if it matters that my window is about 3mm lower than it should be?

Have something to contribute?

Well there will be about 3mm of plastic that wasn't there before ;)

Btw you may need to reset one touch up/down if if stops working.

The one touch up and down only works on the drivers side window anyway? Is that right?

Yeah that's right. They're always a little lower, but they're fine. I've had wind deflectors for 18 months and not a problem, just switched them to the new car and again, no problem.

Give them a quick squirt in the channels with WD40 and the window will find its own way.

Think I ended doing WD40 on my last car because 1 channel was a pain >.<

Just force it shut if needs be and leave them closed for 3 days and they'll bed in lovely. I had really bad trouble with one window jamming at first but over time they sort themselves out :)

Mine go up and stay up and don't jam so I am just going to leave them how they are.

Same on mine, tbh I'd say it probably is grit/road grime/general kak.

I just out on a new set on my car yesterday. The window sits lower than it should for a while but it'll gradually go most of the way up as the deflectors settle in.
