Heko wind deflectors

Post by Reubs » Tue Feb 04, 2020 1:54 pm

I know it’s a matter of personal taste, but I was about to buy a set only to see “ not suitable for cars with folding wing mirrors”.
Anybody know why this might be?

On some cars the gap between the car & the inside edge of the mirror (i.e. the part nearest to the car when it's not folded) gets smaller as the mirror folds, which won't leave enough room for a deflector. Not sure how big a problem this is on Skodas, though.

I have a set of 4 Heko deflectors. They fit and work well, allowing me to park with the windows open enough to get a little air through the car without it being obvious that the windows are not closed. No problems with the auto-folding mirrors.

Have fun,


Ian.
