Just wanted to chime in regarding these or should say this particular noise reduction kits. The kit comes with 10 pieces for the Model Y (actually for the Model 3 and Y). My intention is not give the aftermarket company any kind of a bad rap, just want to share information on the noise reduction kit. The company had installation videos available, wasn't all that complicated.

Onward, some patience is required. Installed all 10 pieces (3 pieces each for the front doors; 1 piece for each of the rear doors; the remaining pieces for the trunk and frunk). I main concern wasn't so much the noise but water - keeping whatever residual water at a minimum from car washes.

It is now the 14 day mark (1/11/2021) and the 3m glue on the back of these strips isn't holding. I can see the trunk and frunk strips are peeling away from the frames, the glue is elasticizing. Basically, all the strips are being compromised, the exception being the strips that are placed inside the front (driver/passenger) pillars.

I read a post somewhere about why would the Model 3 noise reduction kit work on a Model Y (different specs...), should wait until a kit is developed specifically the for Model Y.

I had put a kit on my 3. I thought it actually did a pretty good job in reducing the noise. However it did not hold up well. My issue wasn't water/rain, but the heat here in the Phoenix area. It started coming lose in various spots.

I haven't decided if I'll try a kit on the Y or not. If I do I'll try doing a much more thorough cleaning and prep than just using what came with the kit.

When I started reading this all I thought was, they will peel off. Didn’t expect it to be quite that quick though.

Did you "glue" it back on?
I have some spots in the trunk and frunk that are peeling off.
Is there some better adhesive to use here?

I can't offer anything about the peeling or a better way to prep, but I am curious if there really was any noise reduction and would it be worth the price if the liner stuck on better? If the noise levels are lower post installation, was your MY a pre Nov 20 assembly date with the old windows or a new model?

Just beware if you do remove - that adhesive isn't the easiest to remove, well at not for my situation.
