    Default how are folks securing Wind deflector - tape or clips

    Afternoon all.

    Wonder if anyone could point me to where i can pick up spare wind deflector clips. My rear ones have fallen off at some stage. Or is there a better way to secure them.

    Cheers.

    i would guess ebay or where you got them maybe they could source some for you.

    I have had mine in for about two weeks - didnt use anyclips, but i will be putting them over the weekend. I wanted to see if they would bed in at all with the shape of the window - but to be honest, they are thin enough at the top for it not to damage itself when the window is up (as you would imagine) but i think the shape of them is what makes the window sensor think your kids head is in the way so sometimes the window doesnt go all the way up - hoping that when i sort the clips in the right places it will mean the windae wont see it .

    The clips are small, easy to bend/shape if needed and there is we bit that juts out to stop it falling out. Mines came with some sticky tape too to attach.

    Can't decide if i like them on the back windaes though

    Ah, that would be great @LGaffer.

    Will pm you details.

    Thanks again.

    Maybe worth looking at industrial dbl sided tape as a backup plan. Hopefully no wee scum bags nick mine anytime soon lol.
