Has anyone else had a problem with winshield weather stripping vibration after installing a bug guard on the hood

Asked by Jan 14, 2015 at 08:15 PM about the 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT Ext. Cab 4WD

Question type: Car Customization

I have installed an AVS bug guard on my 2011 Silverado that has caused a loud & very
annoying vibration in the weather strip on both sides of the winshield whenever I reach
about 65 mph.

Happens all the time: the deflector is messing up the aerodynamics of the vehicle. I put one on and right after it sounded as if a bunch of paper strips were taped to the top of the windshield, and were flapping against the roof. Took off the deflector, and the noise went away. That's the solution: remove the deflector.

I had the same thing occur on my 2012 Silverado. The AVS bug deflector is sitting in my closet.
