Question trash behind wrap window rock guards

I'm a neebie with 2015 22FB Sport "Bambi." Leaves and small sticks are dropping down behind the two curved window rock guards. Is this a fault in design or does it mean guards are not fitting tight enough against windows.

That's the way it is. Plan on opening the guards regularly and cleaning back there.

Easy to do....while you are in there be sure to treat the rubber tubing with a protectant as well. Best to do that after cleaning the windows.

I've got to do this, too.

What kind of protectant should we put on the rubber seal?

That's weird......anyway...they are 303 UV Protectant Wipes. Since you already have the windows exposed and open, it's a good time to use these wipes on the rubber parts to clean and preserve them.

Happens all the time. Simple to clean by removing two or so nuts, swiveling out the rock guard, & cleaning the area manually.

That's what I did, following a post from before. Seems to work.
Just remove them before hitting the road, or you will lose them.
