Fitting instructions for the wind deflector????
If you are having trouble fitting the wind deflector, try adjusting any of the four spring loaded pins. Each pin is actually a screw that can be turned to lengthen or shorten for a proper fit. Once pins are the correct length, facing the rear, insert the two pins on the left / passenger side first. Then use the springs to insert the rear / driver side pins. Last pin inserted should be the one closest to the driver seat. The large clip should extend just over the outer, right edge of the deflector.
To fold, you first need to release the pin from the upper / folding part of the deflector. This pin is on the driver side of the deflector, but on the left part of the clip. When removing / folding the deflector, grab the clip closest to the driver seat, and pull out and back (towards the driver seat). Then slide as far left (towards passenger side) as it will go. This should release the pin from the upper/folding part of the deflector and allow for easy folding.
Wind noise on a mini cooper
I would suggest a good wind deflector like the Zefferus windscreen or something to get rid of the bogeys of wind noise and buffeting.
