No worries Mike

I had a good hour or so rummaging through that web link i posted lol. I booked marked that. The other thing I try is google image search for such things, but nothing on there.

I guess the easy option is to drop into local ford dealers parts dept. They would find it in no time. Give it a shot Mike

I think ford call them wind deflectors. And i suppose they also stop stones and that??? The thing is ive seen about 3 out of 10 of mk 3s have them so i dont know why they are only on some have them. I just thought why aint my car got them so i got some. They definently offer some protection from what i dont know lol

I have them on my car and it´s a petrol. Maybe it stops stone chipping on the lower partof the  arc but it also helps collect stones and dirt behind it...

Always full of dirt and small stones.

I wonder why they only on some models

The mind boggles Mikey.I am sure there is a reason, but probably will remain one of life's great mysteries. Well Fords any way.
