Purchased from UTV headquarters a half windshield and rear shield. Now the cab is filled with exhaust fumes. I will have to remove the windshield because this is not a good thing. Anyone else experiencing this issue. Did I waste 350.00?

Would probably be fine without the rear shield.

Had the same issue with the half windshield. Picked up the rear shield to correct the issue. No difference. I don't just get a whiff I get full on exhaust.

That's odd...
I had a Maverick with a half windshield and never had that issue.
Short of removing everything Maybe have a bit of a downspout welded onto the exhaust tip to re-direct the flow?

I had a half windshield on my rzr with no issues. This is so bad I have removed the windshields and I'm chalking this up as a 350.00 loss

Did you get the polycarbonate rear shield? I have the 1/2 front and have noticed some exhaust....I have purchased the soft rear because I thought it would seal better....haven't tried it yet.
You might try sealing some gaps in cab around roll bar...also...with my rhino, I would raise my 1/2 shield up off the hood to allow more air flow...though you may need to configure a center support.

I will report on fumes once my rear shield is installed...probably after New Years ogleby dunes trip.

I have the poly rear shield. This issue isn't sealing it but the vacume created by the front shield. I thought the by adding the rear shield I would correct the issue. My thought is I may need a rear " mesh" instead.
