C5 Aircross PSA Wind Deflectors

Post by BusybeasC5A » Sat May 29, 2021 9:24 pm

Should any one have thoughts of fitting genuine PSA wind deflectors to their C5 Aircross , I have just fitted a pair to ours.
What a pain in the *** to do though !
The PSA instructions are very poor, not helped by the installation tool missing from the sealed package!
The anti pinch mechanism on the windows is a little challenging, but got there in the end.

Wasn't sure about buying the heko versions, even though they are around half the price and you get the back window deflectors too.
However they use retaining clips, which I feared would interfere even more with the very sensitive anti pinch mechanism on the C5 Aircross.

These ae genuine PSA /Citroen /Peugeot deflectors that slot into the window seals with no additional attachments.

Why bother you ask ?
Well, firstly I ain't a smoker, but it would have benefits to them.
No, its purely to allow the windows to be partly open, without rain coming in, while driving along .
Better still, when having a takeaway coffee in the car, there is ventilation, to stop the windows steaming up, and if its raining, no drips come into the car either.
Finally, the horrible splashes from the windscreen wash /wipe trail along the front windows less !

I think they look rather nice too, but its all down to personal preference.

Interestingly, I find the same part number fits not only the C5 Aircross, but the Peugeot 3008 and 5008, which have exactly the same window shape!
Prices vary wildly, but you can find them cheaper.

PSA part number : 1616443380

May not be everyone's cuppa tea , but I like them :D

Cheers
Steve

Rain deflectors, for that is what they are, should be a standard part of windscreen design to prevent water flowing down the side windows.
Just like seat belt buckle stops...
