Ok so just received mine this morning and have slotted them in as I have done with any in the past for other cars. However they have come with 4 metal clips which I'm assuming slot into the window recess. Now I've no idea why these would be needed and I certainly don't fancy scratching my windows on it so any help would be beneficial as to how and why these would be fitted.

Thanks

Just a quick update, haven't installed the metal clips.

Been on a quick 10 min drive and at speed, all it fit snugly and well. Has completely eliminated the buffeting problem when you don't have them (from 40mph all the way up)

Heres a couple pics:

I also have the heko ones after trying the climair ones,the clips are there just for extra security i believe, I did leave mine for a few weeks before fitting the clips as I was a bit worried about getting them back out.but in the end fitted them. So your shout really,I think they will be ok without the clips.

Looks nice :D

What extra security would fitting them give though? From all I can tell is the way they are shaped, they would just make the recess where the deflectors fit into larger... i.e allowing them to fallout easier.

The clips are required for some cars, especially 3 doors. My Hekos on a previous car were loose when installed and the middle bit would flap about at speed on the motorway if the window was wound down while I was smoking, especially in cross winds. This time I fitted the clips and have had no issues in 14K miles. Very secure fit and no flapping or slippage.
