Team Heko Wind Deflectors


Like most people who owns a A4 or a A4 and even other modern cars with out the roof guttering. You get water running off the roof or windscreen down your arm, all over the drivers door and in to the switches. Right pain in the ass.

Last week I ordered a set Team Heko Wind Deflectors for my Avant. I finally got around to fitting them today and here is some pics.

Fitting is relatively easy.
Peel off the double sided sticky tape and push the rears in to position.  Shut the windows to make sure they are correct and not trapping any thing. Open the windows insert the clip at the larger end of the rear deflector. Shut the window, job done.

Fronts a bit more tricky. Same thing with the tape and and closing the window once fitted but getting the deflector in to the window frame is a bit harder. You need to get the bottom in as much as you and at the top right. Then twist and bend a little bit in the middle to fit the rest in. They are very bendy in the middle bit so you'll be ok.
Once in and happy, push the two retaining clips in at either end, stand back and admire your work.

Picture Time

I've been neglecting the body work over the last couple of months.
Not really cleaning or polishing it and my excuse are the weather or lack of time.
Couple of days ago it stopped raining and I was had some free time. so me and a friend went off to a little under ground car park we know of and set about giving it a good clean and polish. Thought I'd get some more recent images for the album of the old girl and share it with you lot.
So here they are. Enjoy.
