    Evening all,

    I have a full set of Heko wind deflectors which are only a month old tops, got them to see if they helped with a whistling noise but didn't so now they are off the car as I find they add extra noise lol

    I don't have packaging so collection only in the Rutland area (Midlands - LE15).

    I have all 4 windows with extra clips from ebay (silver)

    Hope someone can put them to use.

    The link that I got them from is here - https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.co.uk/ulk/itm/181771888733

    Pm me for any info.

    You're correct I took mine off as they made the wind noise louder on mine too.

    It's a shame because they look nice, little things like that bother me lol I guess adding anything to the car exterior is changing the way it reacts with wind... I'd rather not hear it though haha

    If anyone's in Corby I can sort something out as I go there a fair bit.

    Cheers

    Did you work out what the whistling noise is caused by?

    I haven't put much effort in to find it as of yet but it could be my rubber seal on the tiny front window or the wing mirror I think.

    I just turn up the stereo or drive faster haha

    Cheers

    I assume you have the same issue... ?

    You've reminded me that it's an issue lol ill give it a go next weekend and see whats what... The only issue is that it only comes up after 60mph so it's hard to test after you've tried something new.

    Cheers

    I doubt they would make it in the post buddy as I don't have the original packaging and they're somewhat oddly shaped...

    Will you be attending the meet at Donington in July? I can bring them with me if you are.

    Cheers

    Ah ok, I have the PPD170 and due to the swirl flap actuator seal leaking I was getting a whistle/hiss that sounded like it was the wing area, changed the manifold earlier and the noise has gone and the car drives much better

    It's only at 60mph and above not a 1mph slower lol

    I'll do more testing soon I think, maybe by then I'll have got rid of these wind deflectors haha
