    Hi all
    Quick question, how do I remove the wind deflector glass safely so I can fit the smoked wind deflectors I got from ebay?

    Also any tips on fitting said deflectors, I noticed a few of you have them

    Thanks

    James

    Hi James,
    I guess you mean that bit of plastic behind the seats :rolleyes:- then it quite easy to remove it.:)

    Remove the two screws from the black plastic corners holding the 'wind deflector' in place.

    Move the black corners out-wards towards the roll bars - this should give you a bit more movement.

    Then it's a case of a bit of brute force - Press down on the plastic moulding underneath the wind deflector (that has the moulded pocket that holds the bottom of the wind deflector) and pull up on the wind deflector whilst trying to rotate towards the back of the car. It should pop out.:eek:

    Hope this helps,
    Rex.

    The top part of the bracket connected to the roll-over hoops actually pops out. The manual suggests you wrap a screwdriver with tape and slip this in the crack to lever it out. I managed to scratch my roll-over hoops a little, but it just popped out.

    Well I managed to do it no probs, just ended up taking the two screws out holding the plate then this allowed me enough room to take out one of the screws holding the plastic clip to the metal hoop.

    Only REALLY annoying this is I scratched the replacement wind deflector when re tightening the screws, time to get some wet and dry paper on the mark...cest la vie!

    Hummmm, interesting guys.
    I'll try your method next time ;).

    I'm always doing something with the car! Recently I fitted an 8" sub woofer and two tweeters (guess I'll have to do a post on that). I've now got a total of 9 speakers! :D

    I found that the Japanazi wind deflector was slightly thinner than the original and as a result wiggled about making noise, most notiably when the roof is down. I tried to fix it with sticky pads, but never quite got it completely solved. I'm no good at this DIY lark :p

    Yes! I want to hear about this - specifically where the woofer went.

    Well 9 speakers probably sounds a little more impressive (or horrific, depending on your point of view) than it really is.

    3 way Sony speakers in each door - see this post.
    1 more higher level tweeter each side,
    and the sub. Were is the Sub? Under the seat? In the foot well? NO.

    I made a new back board between the seats, you know the one with the elastic pocket, from 11mm MDF. Cut a hole in it so the sub mounts in the boot. Just about managed to find a position for the speaker where the roof does not hit it when it retracts - it was close!

    I wanted the sub, because you can't here much bass with the roof down! No problem now though ;)

    Anyway - sorry getting a bit off topic here. :eek: New thread with pics to follow...
