Topic # 143811 28-Apr-2014 11:33 Send private message

hi,


i am trying to help out a friend here, but after asking around a few places, and getting no answer, i thought i would ask here.


i need to get the plastic canopy type shield which goes over the car window , for a toyota camry. 


this is a nz car, and not Japanese. japanese one's have this plastic transparent shield as a standard for most cars as i have seen on the road, and its great for protecting water not getting into the car seat.


can someone pls advice were can i get these installed for the car,


thanks

They sell some local brand at Super Cheap Auto, you have to order them and get them made up but you can organise it in store.

I believe they're called monsoon shields.
Have you asked Toyota, the price difference might be minimal.

Likley the JDM version will fit the NZDM car, it may have even been an option. Try Toyota. I assume you're talking about monsoon shields.

I was looking for these for my '97 Corolla SE.  Other popular descriptions are "Wind Deflectors" and "Rain Deflectors".

Good luck!

yeah true. , am ok with $200, but $400-$500 is kinda way over the top for the plastic material. 

i am ok with little driplets of water coming in . nothing will happen. i hope !!

You might not have any luck, but also try car wreckers once you have compiled pricing on new options. They often try to push their luck with pricing if the items are in very good condition (and sometimes even on rubbish), but if you've done your homework first and make a reasonable offer they'll usually come to the party.
