There is no such prohibition. The radar unit is the little globe looking thing in the center of the lower grill that you can see in the pictures of the Pacifica at the top of this forum. It's nowhere near the hood.

Resurrecting this old discussion in hopes that someone that has installed the AVS deflector has some pictures they are willing to share. Certainly seems like the Mopar one is a poor effort on their part by having the exposed screws. The Mopar one from my 2005 Town and Country didn't have these.

Thanks in advance.

do you have the link to purchase the AVS bug deflector? Do you use the same for the side windows? AVS vs MOPAR?

I put the MOPAR bug deflector on mine about a year ago. Honestly, while it does offer some protection on the leading edge of the hood, I really don't think it does anything for deflecting things away from the windshield. It is solid with no noticeable movement on the interstate, it's just not designed to deflect anything, despite its name. If I had to do it over again, I'd just go with the protective film.

I realize that this is an old post / thread. But hwy construction locally has me wanting one of these. Already got a hit big enough to dent the hood that this would've helped with. Looking for low profile / leading edge protection.

Do you know what version of the AVS bug deflector you have? I like the low profile of that one similar to OEM.

OEM unit is $250 CAD here, AVS units are $90-$110.

I've searched and searched but can't find any actual photos of the AVS other than what you've posted. Thanks for posting them!
