    Default 406 wind deflector installation

    A while back I bought a second hand set of front window wind deflectors for my 406.

    I know more or less how they fit, but aren't sure whether the deflector fits between the metalwork and the Bailey channel, or outside the Bailey channel, so the window rubs along it? I understand I will need to use double sided tape to keep it in place.

    If anyone has these fitted to their car, could you please advise?

    Not sure if yours are like this but my 306 ones are held on with double sided tape.406 wind deflector installation-gti6.jpg

    The 406 needs them internally which is quite different to 604 or 505, which I'm more used to.

    For whatever its worth, my Xantia (related to 406) has genuine Citroen defectors which simply slip in the door frame, not mounted externally and no tape required.

    Does the deflector sit against the rubber or the womdow frame? The fact that the tape isnt used means less intrusion and that's appealing

    Apologies Gerry for not noticing your question until last night.

    My pair of deflectors have moulded (integrated) flanges which slide in outboard of the bailey channel and inboard of the door frame - quite a secure fit with no clips or tape required. And no more raindrops onto the power window switches!

    Here's a photo taken today.
