Weather Shields


Hi all
A question for all those with weather shields fitted,
I have noticed when on the freeway/ driving around with the rear windows down there is a very heavy reverberation sound which occurs.
(I usually open one ot the front windows to correct it)

Now I would like to know you have noticed if this cabin reverberation is minimised when the weather shields were fitted?
the weather sheilds look generally thin, so I am also wondering if they are a good investment?

Hope that made sence?
kind regards
Ray

Hi Ray.
we have a 07 series 2, with the slimline weathershields fitted.
I dont get any noise coming through with the back window down.
I know the noise you mean.
I used to drive a cab, (Falcon) with one back window down, the noise was like a throbbing sound, & would give you a bloody headache after a while.
The passengers always wound down the rear passenger one.
Hope this is some help to you.
We love ours.
All the best John.

Ray,

If you drive down the highway at high speed with only one window open you will get this noise inside the cabin regardless if you have the weathershields or not, it is the build-up of pressure inside the cabin and can only be avoided by slightly opening one of the other windows at the same time.

Re: Weather Shields


Thanks Guys,
I had a subaru impreza before the xtrail and never had the particular problem.
yeah I thought it may of been some thing to do with the aero dynamic design of the xtrail,
and was hoping that if I disturbed the air flow with weather sheilds I may of been able to resolve the reverberating cabin air issue.
but I didnt take into account the cabin pressure, I think jalal is closer to hitting the nail on the head with the cabin pressure.

cheers
