    Does anyone know where I can get window wind deflectors for a Peugeot Boxer on a 12 plate?

    I had some on my Boxer and they made the windows very stiff to wind up and down.
    When I tried fitting them to the LT, the window became so tight that the glass broke free of the runner meaning I had to strip the door panel out to repair / rebuild it.
    Pity because I like them. :Sad:

    Be very careful, they were fitted to my motorhome when I bought it, what I didn't realise was that in use they were putting a strain on the power window motor to the extent it failed. So, one new motor fitted (not cheap) the guy at the garage told me it is quite a common thing to have the motor fail when the deflectors are fitted. Shame, because I liked to be able to drive with the window partially open without the wind and traffic noise..but I can't afford to replace the window motor for the sake of it :cry:

    We bought some for our previous MH (on a Ford) and found that they did indeed strain the electric motor when putting the window down/up although they did stop the wind and rain coming in with the windows only open a bit which we were pleased with especially with 3 dogs who like to 'sniff' the fresh air!

    They also had quite a tint to them so when looking at the scenery etc through the side window all I saw was the darker area in my eye line which I didn't like. When we changed vans to a Fiat we didn't bother getting any more, however if the ones that stick on the outside were clear rather than smoke tinted I'd consider getting them again!
