    Wind deflector missing parts, Rrrrrrrrrrrr

    I just got a new wind deflector and it did not bring all of the parts, I am so dissapointed... I was hoping to install it this weekend, but guess what? The dealer that I got from in California can not do anything until monday, they don't have another one in stock and it is not simple to explain what is missing, rrrrrrrrr....
    Does anyone have a list of the parts that should have being included?

    Re: Wind deflector missing parts, Rrrrrrrrrrrr

    Perhaps the bit fell into that giant pot hole, or is it a crater, when the delivery truck went over / around or in it.
    Just taken mine off to clean it (gets milky very quickly, for some reason). The parts consist of two clips which locate one each inboard of the rollover hoops, a ridged piece of plastic about 50mm long x 10mm high x 6mm thick, which locates on the frame between the rollover hoops, the plastic framed deflector itself, and and on my car (with the Bose system) a soft plastic storage bag. Without the Bose I think you get a storage cubby on the rear bulkhead between the seats.

    In place

    Dreamcar, thanks a lot for the pictures.... As I thought, I'm missing the two pieces that hold the upper part of the wind deflector. I took a couple of pictures of what was in the box plus your two pictures and sent them to the dealer, I hope they can take care of this with no hassle...
    BTW, did you install it yourself? It does not look like a simple installation, the bottom piece came with some rivets, that's pro stuff for me...

    Re: Wind deflector missing parts, Rrrrrrrrrrrr

    No, I specified the wind deflector / Bose combined option when I ordered the car. It is an accurate fit, so I would recommend a dealer installation. The slightest bit "out" and it will either rattle or won't fit at all. Those upper pieces are "handed" so you want to make sure you get one of each.
