    Team Heko Wind Deflectors

    My set of these arrived in the post this morning. Fitted them and the front ones and they stop the windows from reaching the top of the frame, they roll back down, the Anti-catch feature or something. Any advise on how can I stop this from happening?

    First of all is the deflector in there properly? When you put the window up, make it go up slowly and not shoot up automatically. Yes you have to keep flicking the button when you do it to stop it from going into auto mode but do that until it goes all the way in and the window will adjust to it.

    I bought some for my A4.
    Going to fit them this weekend.

    I'll keep an eye on the windows.

    Thanks.

    Do they actually make any difference on the S3?

    I added the factory wind deflectors on my Legacy GTB import and I'm sure the wind noise with the windows closed increased and the deflectors actually seemed to do bugger all with the windows open a smidgen.

    I've got some on my 8P, they do add a bit of wind noise with the windows shut on the motorway.

    Good thing is you can have the window open a bit when it's raining without getting a free shower and if you have the window open on the motorway the noise is reduced.

    I just fitted mine to my B5.
    I can post pics if you want but its a Avant A4, so nothing like your S3s.

    They was easy to fit but the fronts did need some adjustment so the windows will close with one touch.
    Over all good.

    Here is some chips.


    With out wind deflectors






    Wind deflectors with windows down





    Wind deflectors with windows up













    Fitting is relatively easy.
    Peel off the double sided sticky tape and push the rears in to position. Shut the windows to make sure they are correct and not trapping any thing. Open the windows insert the clip at the larger end of the rear deflector. Shut the window, job done.

    Fronts a bit more tricky. Same thing with the tape and and closing the window once fitted but getting the deflector in to the window frame is a bit harder. You need to get the bottom in as much as you and at the top right. Then twist and bend a little bit in the middle to fit the rest in. They are very bendy in the middle bit so you'll be ok.
    Once in and happy, push the two retaining clips in at either end, stand back and admire your work.

    one small issue.
    the mirrors touch the deflectors.
    might be ok with normal mirrors but not sure what or if any effect on the motors of auto mirrors.
    time will tell.

    Took me 10 minutes to fit mine and it was simple to do. They come with instructions of what to do - Push the front in first, then the back, and then slide up into position.


    I had the problem with the windows bouncing back down, and found that it was as a result of the deflector by the wing mirror, just push it in hard enough and it'll get out of the way of the window that's trying to come up.

    Here's what mine looks like with them on, although you can hardly see them in the light:

    Try opening the window for a bit of fresh air when it's raining and see how good the aircon is at drying your arm
