    Hi all,

    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?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have the factory deflectors (the ones that use trim tape and go on the outside of the door frame) and they are also fine with the folding mirrors.

    FWIW, I had Dubflecta sleeks on mine and have now fitted the Retro version as I prefer the look. Neither have any issue with the folding mirrors on my MY18 Highline.

    Update:
    I have fitted Heko style ones (I thought they were branded Heko, but they don't seem to be branded - Ebay purchase, didn't fully read the listing). Great fit, simple to install, no issues with the folding mirrors. Thanks for the replies. Cheers.

    Just fitted a pair of the same wind deflectors from travelin lite and I seem to have quite a bit of wind noise coming from what it seems the glass doesn't seal properly where the supplied clips are holding the deflector. Do you guys experience the same issue ? I've fitted them according to their instructions and all good except the noise..

    I haven't noticed any increase in wind noise at all I don't think. Are you sure you have pushed the clips in fully and the glass is going all the way up? That's the only thing I can think of. I fitted another set of these today on a different van, but haven't driven it yet so I can't confirm if these are "quiet" also.

    Hi, mind are as quiet as a mouse ! to coin the phrase , i'd suggest taking them off and re-fitting them . have you made sure the clips are the correct way round ? …..just a thought :)

    I had Hekos on my van. No problem with the mirrors, but they were noisy in the wind & made the horrendous “A” pillar blind spot even worse. They’re sat on my desk if anyone wants to make me an offer.

    I replaced my OEM wind deflectors with Heko ones. I get the same wind noise. I’m sure it’s because of the metal clips not allowing the window to move fully up and seal. I’m thinking of trying them without the clips.
    If my OEM ones hadn’t broken on removal I would be tempted to go back to them although they don’t look anywhere near as good they were much quieter.
