To Drivers with Wind Deflectors..... Do these divert rain/water from running off the roof and onto the upholstery please? I stopped a car-park tick machine today and so much rain came off the roof and ran over the window switches that I received a window open warning for a while (when closed)!

If OPs question relates to when you open the door, and the roof drips onto the seats, then “no” as deflector is on the door, which isn’t there when open, as fixed to the door

Or did I misunderstand the question?🥺

No, you didn't and I should have thought of that for myself. Dohhh! But from the answer given I can see that it may stop the rain when at a car park ticket machine but not when opening the doors to get into the car. Sadly another reason why me and the Chr will not be having a long relationship.

I get less water dripping in when opening doors on the CHR than my previous cars, VW Golf and a TT roadster (with roof up obviously...)

I use a lot of different hire cars for work trips and seems a common problem, since car designs removed the old seam on the roof that acted like a gutter. Look at any old Mk 1 escort and no chance of any water dripping in, because of the fugly seam above the door

Like most cars these days the C-HR is gutterless and so water will run off the car. It’s a problem that affects lots of cars.

Problem is even worse if you wax your car like I do as the water runs off in a torrent 🤣

Ditto, son has VW Tcross it's the same. I think the passengers in the back don't fair so good either thought one of the grandkids had a mishap but it was running onto the rear arch and got him as he climbed out. Didn't happen on the A Class tho.
