What are our options for window rain guards???

Post by 85hpp » Sun Mar 04, 2018 2:39 am

Do we even have any? lol... not having a window frame seems to make it tricky...
One of the only things that turns me off about the 94 is getting dripped on while smoking with the window cracked in the rain. Would it be easier to just quit smoking? :D

Also I'm getting a drip from the top-rear corner of the RR window... do those weird 'gutter' things on the roof need to be cleaned out periodically or prone to hide rust holes??? The car was VERY mildew stinky when I got it... It's usually parked under a carport now, but I like to remedy things when I can. Any advice would be great!

I think there might be some option if you choose a subaru that has them availible, like the 1st gen imprezas, I think they 05 legacys might have them. I can't remember if they are frameless doors

I need to figure out how to remove my "raingutter" things because age has taken a toll and previous owner neglect [emoji23]

I was able to use rain guards from a 2nd generation legacy wagon, the front guards are about 2" too long so you have to cut them down a bit. They fit the window fairly well, I ordered mine of rockauto.

I used AVS rain guards on my '02 LGT wagon and my '17 OB; they worked well. The guards for the frameless windows on my '02 attached to the body with clearance so the doors willopen with the windows fully up. They are sold on Amazon among other places. It's worth a look to see whether they still sell them for your '94.
