Goes from the very bottom of the window by the mirror to the end up at the top of the window.

U got any pics of how long it is up on the window?

I believe once you pull the tape off and stick it into the weather strip. It will go up into there like it is suppose to.

If I recall mine were the same.

but the part in the side mirror, it just sticks in there funny and doesnt really seem like it will be in there very good. i can see it popping off and thn when i roll up the window, the window will try to get on the other side of the visor and break it. if it went like this i see i break it cus he window should be against the fuzzy part but the vent thing is to weird.

no it just goes in there but makes the plastic piece on the mirror pop out which pushes the visor inwards

Here is how mine is. Why not pull the tape and install and if it doesn't work take it back?
You could probably even trim some of the lip off the visor to make it smaller.

i allready did trim some of the mirror, just weird that i would have to do this to get these stupid things in haha. i guess ill try and then put the window up and keep it up for a while so it can stick, but just doesnt seem like the sticy part will hit anything to stick so it just dangle there

Try to loosen the upper bolt for the mirror to relieve it a little
