    I've got Heko. Bought from Cheshire Motor Caravans - £21.99 plus delivery. Brilliant service.

    I dont think they look particularly great being stuck on the outside rather than in the window channel, i got dealer to include in van price when haggling having never seen them, if i had seen them i would have gone aftermarket at the start
    I changing now as i had to remove my complete wing mirrors to install my led indicator mirror glass so the fronts of the deflectors are unstuck and looking a bit loose

    Thanks for the heads up :thumbsup:

    I think I'll try a hair dryer as well, just to loosen things up a bit

    Got a brand new set of van x ones, mate bought them but never fitted them. Fit the same as the Vw ones just slightly darker. Here if you want them, had already purchased a set by the time he dropped them off here.

    I think the van-x are surface mounted stick ons, like the VW(UK) ones.

    I have had my machine 7 ones today and tonight I tried to fit one, but it didn't fit completely flush by the wing mirror section and when the window went up it seemed to be putting pressure on the motor so I took it off. No instructions with them so after some fitting advice please.

    I've been told to expect the resistance, and just ease it up, a bit at a time, then when its up, leave it alone and the main doors rubber seals will relax after a few hours of pressure; then there should be little extra strain on the motors. Oh also use some silicon spray/lube.:)

    Well tried again when I got in from work tonight and just can't do it! They just won't go up! I have booked in on Friday next week with Midland VW to get them to do it as I just can't get the window to stop falling! Boo hoo!
