I had the local KIA dealer do my KIA vent visors, since they should have the expertise that comes with experience, and I'd rather they make the mistake if one is to be made.

LOOKS like one, no two, mistakes were made.

The two front visors appear to have been glued on about an inch too far forward, ahead of the joint where there is an obvious seam to tuck in to.
I didn't notice this until I got the car home last night. I'm about to do a test run, but it looks like there will be wind whistle, and later peeling because the visor is not tucked in.
Next stop, KIA dealer.

I really should have inspected it more carefully before leaving the dealership. I keep forgetting how difficult it is these days to get good help.

Pics to follow, meanwhile off to the races.

I know the Hyundai visors were made by Weathertech and fit into the channel. Is the OEM Kia ones simply the stick on ones?
