    Is there a replacement seal for where the air deflector meets the roof? Mine seems to be deteriorated to the point where the wind blows through the small gap and makes quite a bit of noise.

    I've found a couple serviceable ones at junk yards. Pick'n'Pull had a half-off everything sale two weeks ago and I picked up the whole wind deflector for a 00-01 for $4.99.

    I used double stick foam tape. Remove the deflector and arms from the roof. stick the tape to the bottom of the arm. Trim it to size. poke a couple of holes for the screws. Peel the backing off, line up the screws, stick it to the roof and reassemble the whole deal. Works so far...

    Nice deal on the used deflector! If you come across another in good shape I'd buy it off you for $20 plus shipping to 11238

    Do you need the early 00-01 deflector or the later style?

    I'm sorry, I miss understood. I’m only interested in a "Rear Wind Deflector” by Nissan in excellent condition as it’s only a backup. I believe the part number was 10346023. It has been discontinued since at least 2009

    How's the double stick foam tape so far?

    It just fills a gap that was left by the disintegrated rubber so it's holding up fine...

    My buddy's 2001 seem having the same problem on the deflector as it has some movement last time he checked. There's where might the mystery noise his wife hearing lately. We'll take a look at it right after we finished installing the new brake kit and mud tires on his weekend toy truck project.

    Hopefully the revnut did not come loose...that would be more of a hassle.
