Any suggestion on where to buy side-view mirror visor for my lovely Leaf?

Thu Apr 29, 2021 10:05 pm

Hi friends,
I am looking to buy a side-view mirror visor for Leaf (2020) to keep the mirror relatively dry while it is raining. Any suggestions?

Are visors generic for most vehicles or is the one for the lovely leaf different?

Thank you in advance guys. :mrgreen:

Not sure what is meant by "razor"?
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

They're also called side mirror Rain Guards.
I'm only aware of universal sizes that fit most cars and trucks. They come in different colors, textures, etc and you can find them in stores like walmart or online at amazon, ebay, etc.

Thanks. Didn't know the other name. Do you think there is way to guard the four cameras as well in the rain? a simple (ugly) DIY is also fine :D

Where are the 4 cameras on your Leaf?

I have the S trim, so I'm only aware of the rear backup cam.

One in front under the Nissan Logo, two for each side mirror, one in the back for backup cam.

Not that would keep rain off, just something that can't be helped. Then after the rain, dust/pollen gets all over the lenses and you have to wipe it down. I've tried using RainX and stuff to repeal water, but mother nature still has her way with them getting dirty :lol:

Ah, I see what you mean now.

I have only seen side camera covers for Teslas, not Nissans. And based on their design, I think those covers are only for physical protection, not for rain/dust protection.

For a DIY camera protection against water, you can try using the stick-on type side mirror waterproof films. They look like a big phone screen protector. You will need to cut them to shape, fit and stick on your camera lens. I have only seen them sold online. However, they are meant to go on a flat (mirror) surface, so I am not sure if they will hold well on the curved camera lens.

Can do something after that. Just want to be able to drive well while its raining. Especially the rear camera.
