    What do you have to do with the metal clips that come with the deflectors. Do they support the deflectors when it's sticking or does it always stay in the window channel?

    Cheers.

    Do these also stop the rain dripping through the window when it's been raining heavily and it runs off the roof? That annoys the hell out of me.

    I think they might do. That free "shower" is the most annoying thing about the car. I shall let you know later when I take the car for a test drive with the deflectors fitted.

    Yes!
    This is why I bought mine.

    Didn't get clips with my Hekos, just double-sided tape which was next to useless. They stay where they're put anyway so it's ok.

    One thing that should be noted: They might make your electric window think something is stuck in it. My window occasionally stops going up and starts going down again when it reaches the deflector...

    I've got team heko deflectors on my T4 transporter, the first and best mod i've done to the van, only things I dont like is the logo on the rear of the deflectors, and the inside of the deflectors gets scratched up quite easily, but nothing a bit of compound / polish can't sort out.
