Ok guys I now have my deflectors in place but all that's holding them in is the tiny amount of tape on them and the window itself how the heck do fit the clips as I find the are as tight as a ducks bottom and cannot get it in

you put the deflectors in first then push the clips in behind em with a flat blade screwdriver mate

 

theres videos on youtube where they put the clips in first n then the deflector but these are WRONG

 

 

this video should be good enough. picked it cause of the soundtrack  ;)

 

 

 

lookin good by the way

Tbh I had a front set fitted to my Mk1 and never bothered with the clips and they never came loose.
I can understand needing them on the rear but as the front ones have to be flexed to fit in the channels they self support.

Same here I have tints on the back but since I don't open them that much should be ok but not scratching or peeling the tints yet and artscot mine are hekos and came with 4 clips for each front and 2 for each rear deflector they might of just started supplying them

Quite possibly cant see the point to be honest clips will scratch the glass over time

When I had Heko on my Mk1 they definitely came with clips but they were much smaller than the ones being used in the video (no wider than a screwdriver blade).
The Climair on my Mk2 definitely didn't come with clips.

my hekos came with clips and they are quite big. surprised how big they was

 

cant say i've noticed any marks or scratches on me windows cause the windows go up in the channel between the clips so they dont actually scratch against anything

Mine are heko's and also came with clips for front and rear. Ditched the front ones though a while back, as they will hold themselves in place.

Apparently heko started supplying clips as they had complaints the 3m tape had failed on some but its up to the customer as to wether they require them so mystery sorted lol clips are avsilable from heko for older customers wont be needin them ive knocked grabbed and caught mine hundreds of times and theyre solid but nice to know
