    Hi all
    I am after purchasing some wind deflectors for my car. After using search on here, it is apparent the recommended ones are team heko.
    Some people have put links on from where they purchased them but links or items no longer work.
    Can anyone who purchased some recently please advise where to get them from. Plenty on eBay but don't fancy getting some and them turning out to be fake ones.
    Many thanks

    Thanks. Have them in my watched list so will go ahead with them.
    Easy to fit? Any problems with window closing?

    I had no problems at all other than still haven't figured out how to make the clips stay in?

    Ok, they arrived quickly and were indeed a quality Heko item.

    They fitted well, looked good and as wind deflectors they were great at stopping buffeting.

    However, a couple of issues...

    1. When driving above 50 mph they whistled.
    2. They also made the A pillar appear wider and so created a wider blind spot.

    So I have removed them and packed them up and am hoping to send back.

    Thanks for the advice. I have purchased some now but unable to fit just yet. Got to wait for Santa to deliver them first. :eek:

    Got the deflectors today and just fitted them. Had a few issues with front windows not going up at first. The only way I could get round it was to have the windows up then put deflectors in place. Tried window few times and all seems well. Will check in morning. Had to use the clips on the rear ones cos they didn't seem to stay in place very well with just the tape.
    Pleased with them at moment but not been for a drive yet with them on. Will check for wind noise etc

    I had to do the window reset a few times as when ever I tried to close the drivers window it would come back down automatically. Had to do it with engine running!

    I did refit mine and left them to settle for 24 hours and they were quieter, but I didn't like the blind spot they created though.

    They have been sent back for a full refund now.

    Tried them again today and window still goes up and down.
    Never noticed much of a blind spot but will bear it in mind.
    How do you do window reset just incase it's needed at later date?
    Thanks

    Wind window up and when it reaches the top hold it there for a second or 2 then release.

    This sets the safety closure system.

    I had to do it with engine running for some reason!

    Evening Steve8274, how are you getting on with the wind deflectors? Thinking of getting a set but thought I would see if you've had any issues with them!
    cheers.

    Hi
    All fitted and had no issues so far. Weather hasn't been the best so not really had the need for Windows to be opened.
    All in all I am pleased with my purchase and would recommend

    I've a heko deflector on the drivers side and a no make version on the passenger side that has the matching chrome trim. I'm still undiceded which do go for. I might just leave it as it is so I can have both looks.

    Just took mine off, only had them on for a few months, front windows strained to close with them on, they are the heko ones.

    Is this a problem with the 3rd Generation only as I've had Heko fitted to my 7th Generation accord for some time without any problems at all and was considering buying a set for my newly acquired 2nd Generation CR-V
