My dealer didn't have a clue.I think my deflector was the first they installed on a Venue. As I detailed in posts before, I had to prove the solution to them. It's really a simple fix, before or after the deflector is installed. If the dealer doesn't want to apply the foam tape to the back of the deflector (not to the hood) at installation, I'd insist that they agree to take it back when it's noisier on the highway. I've never had mine through a car wash but I can't see any reason to be concerned about going through one. Most deflectors fasten to the hood in the same fashion.For you that have had the bug deflector installed will it go through a car wash with any problems? Have installed a few on previous trucks and never had a problem just don't know if it would be a problem with the Venue. Also does the dealer know about the noise issue when one is installed and has a fix for it?
I would really like to get one installed and not go with the Clear Bra like I have done with 3 previous vehicles. That being said I will say the Clear Bra does work. Thanks!
