Evenin' all...

Trying to solve a wind nose problem in my LC100 - very very noisy inside with the front windows open. Reduced if the rears are opened a little and/or the sunroof cracked open. Seems to be part generated by the seatbelt where it goes down the side of the B pillar.

I have bought a genuine Toymota window shield for the drivers side, but I note that it seems to be the bikini type (does not go all the way down the front of the window), yet there are others that are bigger and go all the way to the bottom of the window.

Anyone had any experience with these things - which is better???

Better still - how does one get rid of the wind noise???

TIA

I would suggest you don't open the window!

Yeah well it has come down to that. In the days when I had hair I loved the window down (wind in hair thing, you know). I would still like to have the window down to remember those days, even if it means buying a toupee...

i run the slim line ones...about 50mm

dont like the full shields

works ok for me...a lot less noise

i used to put them on the 80's also but back them i couldnt get slimline ones so i cut the normal ones down on a band saw...worked a treat.

OK sounds good - the slime line ones are from Toyota?
