Installed the Windrestrictor!!

My husband installed the wind restrictor yesterday. Can't believe the difference! Love that my hair made it from Point A to Point B looking practically the same!

as JonB states, whether windrestrictor, our sponsor, or the oem, you leave it in place. You only remove it to clean it (if removable to do so)

I leave mine in place as well. It works a lot better than the mesh one which I no longer have any use for.

Silverfox,

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

Please update your location/vehicle (model and year) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information.
‘Usercp’ at the top left of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’

You might want to post an introduction in the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section, if you haven’t already.

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
In addition, if you haven’t, please post your question in the appropriate discussion forum for a quicker response and only once. Be patient and a knowledgeable member will address your question.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) - capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread, make a post, click on the ‘paper clip’ or go to ‘advanced’ and then ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’!
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: https://www.slkworld.com/rotm-submissions-voting/

Thank you
Jeff

I love mine. Probably one of the most understated, cheapest & easy DIY Slk upgrades.
A Must.

Installed mine today. Took a while - trip to the hardware shop for T15 Torx screwdriver, tightened the backing plate too much and had to loosen to get the bulkhead cover back on, test drive for rattles and efficacy - passed with flying colours.

About 8 days from order to arrival in Aus, so very happy all round!
