What are these for!?... Window clips?

Postby Sempron Gamer » Mon Aug 15, 2016 2:07 am

I've seen these plenty of times before, and I'm pretty sure they came with our cars from the factory, but what is the purpose of them?...

I've had my car since 07 but it didn't come with them. Found a 89 Si in the scrap yard a few weeks ago that still had them, so I took them :)

I thought they made a car easier to break into so I removed mine. I was wrong by the way.

I believe these are for water/rain. They drip the rain on to the window so it doesn't come inside. I need to find some for my car again. I regret getting rid of them.

I think they are intended to control wind noise by holding the window in against the seal when fully closed
