Wind Deflectors mk2.5

So my Wind Deflectors arrived, I managed to get the front ones on (without any clips, is this okay?)
As for the rears the clips doesn't seem to hold it at all in place? The previous owner had Deflectors on them because I found two clips wedged inside the window rubber.
Any advice on making the rears stay in tight?

Also is the fronts safe without a clip?

 

Thanks

I did a search, but found nothing relating.

Clean the gap they fit into as best you can then secure in place with 3M double sided tape applied to the length of the wind deflector.

Fronts will stay in no problems without clips - they sit in snug enough that they don't become and issue - Never fitted the clips on the fronts on any of the cars ive had them fitted to; Mrs has them on her 2.5 without the clips, as well.

The rears DO need them. lost a pair on my Mk2 when the windows were opened at speed...sad times. But yeah, fit the deflector in place, nice and snug and then rest the clips on the window edge and slowly and gently do the window up into place, making sure the clip spike faces inside of the car, not toward the plastic deflector. if memory serves, the rear windows are manual on most of the Mk2.5 trims so easier to achieve than automatic ones. Wind up the window so everything seats properly and leave it over night and it should be good to go.
