Impul's Window Visors are some of the highest quality visors available on the market. Not only do they have superb fit and finish compared to lower priced competitors, but they offer extended features and styling to compliment your car.
1. Wash and clean the exterior of your car.
2. Remove all of the components from the box and inspect them for any damage or missing parts. You should have a pair of front and rear window visors, 8 window tabs, 8 tap-in bolts and a preparation wipe. We recommend having an additional pair of hands, painter’s tape, scissors and a flathead screwdriver (optional)
3. Remove each of the window tabs from the molded bracket. Make sure to trim the top of the tab to make the top completely flat with scissors.
4. Roll down all of the windows in the car.
5. Wipe down the exterior mounting surface where the visors will sit with soap and water, then once its dry wipe down again with the included primer wipe to make sure you have a clean surface to install the window visors. Wash your hands after handling the wipe.
6. You will see two holes on each visor. Align a window visor with the corresponding window frame, and take note of where the holes are.
7. There is a rubber seal with a narrow gap directly underneath the mounting surface. Gently pry the gap open with your fingernail or with a flathead screwdriver and insert the window tab into the gap. The hole for the tap-in bolt has a collar, this collar should be facing away from the window and towards the interior of the car. (Tip: Use electrical tape on the tip of your screwdriver to prevent any marring.)
8. Begin peeling a very small edge of the double-sided tape on one of the front window visors as shown in the instructions, then flip up the tape backing strip so it protrudes on the side. Make sure to do this for all sides on each strip.
9. Cut four or five strips of the painter’s tape and use it to hold the visor in place as you align it.
10. Check to see that the visor is aligned the way you want it to be. Once you’re happy with how it sits, grab the exposed backing strip you flipped up and slowly begin to peel the tape upwards, putting pressure on the areas of the visor you just peeled the backing from.
11. Once the tape has been fully removed, put pressure on the visor where the adhesive is and hold for 15-20 seconds. Do this in sections until you’ve covered the whole visor.
12. Re-align the window tabs in the weather seal’s gap with the hole in the visor if needed, then place one of the tap-in bolts through it. Do this for both holes.
13. Get the rear visor for the side you put the front visor on and start to align it so you can put the window tabs in. When aligning the front of the rear visor with the backside of the front visor, make sure you put a 3mm gap to ensure adequate clearance so the rear visor does not rub against the front visor when the door is opened.
14. Place the window tabs in the rear seal’s gap like you did for the front visors.
15. Peel a small section of the backing strip from the double-sided tape and flip the backing strip so it sticks out when viewed from the front. Do this for all pieces of double-sided tape on this visor.
16. Align and secure the visor with 4-5 strips of painter’s tape.
17. Grab the exposed backing strip you flipped up and slowly begin to peel the tape upwards, putting pressure on the areas of the visor you just peeled the backing from.
18. Once the tape has been fully removed, put pressure on the visor where the adhesive is and hold for 15-20 seconds. Do this in sections until you’ve covered the whole visor.
19. Re-align the window tabs in the weather seal’s gap with the hole in the visor, then place one of the tap-in bolts through it. Do this for both holes.
20. Repeat instructions 6 through 19 for the other side.
