Kia sells their own brand rain guard/window deflector for the Niro.

Just got these, same ones you have. No instructions included. Called the supplier, they were no help.

Seems pretty straight forward but just checking to avoid messing anything up. I assume you just :

1. Clean the area that the tape goes with alcohol & let it dry

2. line the visor up where you want it

3. Start peeling the tape at one end & lightly stick it on in place as you gradually peel away the tape.

4. If they are not where you want em, peel off & try again.

5. If they are positioned where you want em, firmly rub / press the sticky part down for long term adhesion. Then they are good to go, rain or shine (rain here in Seattle).

Am I missing anything? Thanks

Well, that was easy -- just as described in previous post.

I didn't get the Kia ones because they cost is 4x of the ebay ones. Plus the ebay ones are more streamlined, doing the same job but blend in with the car's overall lines.

The only negative is that the width of the end of back door vent doesn't match the end end of the front door one -- it is wider & sticks out a bit more. Nothing major, just would be nice if they matched exactly.
