What is the purpose of window louvers?
There is a common query about visibility after installing rear window louvers. The main purpose of plastic grills is to reduce sunshine in the interior and keeping your car cool. However, louvers do not block your rear window entirely, you can still see through it with good visibility. There is also a common myth regarding performance increase with window louvers. Unfortunately, plastic grills do not improve cars’ aerodynamic or any other performance parameters. However, window louvers surely make your car look more sporty and have practical use by decreasing the glare and temperature of the interior.
How do you install a sunshade cover?
Usually, rear window louvers are installed using windshield glue or alternative adhesives, mounting it directly on the window. There is also the second option – removing your rear window and mounting plastic grills as a replacement. Anyway, in both mounting ways, it is possible to remove the window louver if needed.
