    Do you have the hole in each turret?
    If so your ready to go

    Don't think mine has those small holes. It has the larger ones I the top of the turret I think. Will check tomorrow when I go to where it is stored. Hope it does have them. Will come back to you.

    It needs the fitting turrets underneath the plastics. Otherwise it is unusable unfortunately.

    If it has the holes in the turrets as pictured above the brackets the deflector locks into will be there .

    That's true, but most cars don't have them.

    That's an unusual fitting; doesn't appear you can use the storage box with it fitted? My OEM 1997 wind deflector fits into mounts on the top of the turrets.

    Before I fitted the hoops I had the same deflector as Steve is selling and it fitted the same way. It does stop you using the rear storage box but I never use it anyway. Just need to becareful as there is "type 1 and type 2", only difference being the distance between the mounting points.

    Just to clear things up after the last 2 posts
    Yes there is a type 1 and type 2.
    Type 1 fits pre facelift 750 mm pin distance
    Type 2 fits facelift 700 mm pin distance
    ( this is due to facelift having larger rear speakers)
    The one I have for sale is a type 1 pre facelift 750 mm pin distance.

    On the second point made these wind deflector have 3 possible positions to fit in
    ( I have only pictures of 2 as I could not find 1 in the 3 rd position)
    Position 1 vertical behind seats
    Position 2 folded back to lie flat.
    Position 3 ( squeeze the 2 central pins ) and the whole deflector flips down and sits flat against the rear of the storage box to allow full unhindered access to it .
