Wind restrictor bits

Hi peoples, I recently bought an 172 OEM wind diffuser, the one that fits between the anti-roll bars with the side hinged plastic wings and lower location spigots. The thing is I am sure I can get it to fit in my 171, not perfectly but good enough. When cut some slots into the ar bars and the rear parcel shelf it would be good to fit the inserts from a 172. Could anybody furnish me with the part numbers of the said fittings. These will help to finish the job off professionally so to speak.
Thanks for any help.

You mention 172 deflector to fit 172, do you mean to fit 171 (the car you have listed)?


You can look up part numbers here: https://slk-links.neocities.org/EPCLINKS.HTM

My understanding is that 171 & 172 deflectors are not interchangeable.
Rather than damage the car when modifying this to fit,
why not sell the 172 deflector on our for sale threads here https://www.slkworld.com/slk-parts-sale/
Then ask if anyone has the correct one here https://www.slkworld.com/slk-parts-wanted/

You just missed two, but as cars get sold more will come up.

This might still be available? https://www.slkworld.com/slk-parts-s...arts-sale.html
Check if they have all the parts first.

Well spotted Avel Du,yes I did mean 'to fit my 171'. And I do not want to sell it on as I think they are the better choice out of all the oem types, apart from the 3 piece ones, but they are out of my price range. Hopefully I can fit them without spoiling the car. Just need the inserts for cosmetic reasons. A work colleague has a 172 so I can get dimesions from his car.

But thanks for the thought

Cheers, part numbers still wanted - anyone???

Hi Wos53, No none of these parts l was expecting some inserts that fit in the anti roll bar for the 'hinged wings' to locate into. Looks like I need to look at the connection points again, but thanks for the picture.

Cheers

Windbrake bits

HiFriends, Been gathering infomation. See attatched file. My mate supplied theinfo. and agrees there are inserts in the anti-roll bars, these beingsacraficial to account for excessive wear which could lead to rattles from therestrictor.

Hopethis clarifies to what I am lookingfor.at I am looking for.

P.S.don't know if this attatchment is going to work but will keep trying, sorry forany duplicates.
