I have see quite a few posts on wind deflectors, so thought I would my thoughts.
I have now had 3 different types so maybe can help others with a choice. The ones I have used (in the order I used them), with pros and cons are:
1. VW OEM:
These stick on the outside onto the painted surface of...
I collected my new (to me) van on Friday and have removed the Dubflecta wind deflectors and a set of OEM mudflaps.
Mudflaps are obviously used but will still do the job. Van has done 36000 miles so I assume they’ve been on since new. Rears have caught the ground a few times by the looks. For...
Can someone tell me which (if any) front wind deflectors are suitable for vans with folding mirrors? I've searched the forum and read a lot of posts but can't find the answer. I like the Heko ones but the sale listing for them says they are not suitable for folding mirrors?
Just a quick 3 min video on fitting these Heko wind and rain guards ... they make a massive difference to the functionality of the van in my opinion... you can crack the window and enjoy a little fresh air while driving, or stationary to stop moisture build up while sleeping, and also run an...
Bit stumped...….. fitted my dubflecta wind deflectors yesterday, on drivers side the first time I tried to close the window the anti trap kicked in so removed them and refitted, 2nd time stalled a bit but them carried on. However now it will not operate at all on the one shot, have to hold the...
Can you put up any pics of how the deflector looks when it is in properly in and around the wing mirrors,I have had a go at putting it on and the window hits the bottom of the deflector, does the sharp-ish corner of the deflector sit in the window channel, where my window won't go up because of...
I've had what I would call excessive wind noise on the drivers side window since I bought the van, a few months ago.
I fitted some Hekos wondering if it would make it better or worse and it made no difference so after a 450 mile round trip in the van last weekend with annoying...
Has anyone had any issues when fitting these wind deflectors?
I cannot push the clips in far enough to stop them catching on the window.
The window also rubs on them when closing but hay may have something to do with not being able to push the clips in properly?
So in the sunshine whilst parked I leave my windows cracked open an inch or 2.
Later, I close them at night. The passenger goes up no problems but the drivers side has to be reset. This is getting on my wick as I can't just close the windows using the remote. Any suggestions for a solution please?
Yet to do our first night in the van and just wondering how people are getting fresh air in. Seen wee boot latch extenders....?
Also thought about leaving window slightly open ......?
Also what’s the way to lock doors but disable alarm....I know about the b pillar button but do you need to...
our local garage here says that these are the original VW wind deflectors:
Original VW T5 T6 Bus Multivan Transporter Windabweiser Türen vorne rechts links Acrylglas
i thought that the origonal ones glued onto the door? That was why most people changed and went for the...
Seen loads of these wind deflectors, brought some for our Touran but haven't fitted them yet. Just wondering which are the best fit and quality for T6. Was thinking of going with Machine 7 ones. Thoughts?
