    Not sure if this is the type you have or not, but it is what a quick google search turned up.

    lock

    Thanks for the info...that was the place I have been looking at for a while, but due to the site is overseas and not being able to open the video about removing and replacing their lock I just don't know for sure.
    I guess I'll bite the bullet and order their lock replacement, again thanks for answering my inquire.

    After (4) tries to find a locksmith 'shop' found one, the guy made the keys in a short time. It seems most of the locksmith now days are mobile and they don't carry some special tools to remove the cylinder lock to be use as template and make a key fort it.

    They seem to be harder and harder to find, but there are a few still operating out of stores. Glad it worked out.

    Here's the video for the German website. This is useful to me, as the little pot-metal 'feet' have broken off of my wind deflector, and this replacement would provide complete new units...

    Thanks, the video is great help...I wish to have seen it before, but the reflector is working just fine, I'm glad you told me about the metal feet I heard that was the weak part in that specific deflector, I did tested on a drive this week noticed how much vibrates at high speed (120 miles) when is at full deflection. So I'll fold it any time driving speed's above 70 miles.

    Carlin, I've never had mine quite that fast (!), but have hit 80+ and if the wind deflector is properly seated and the lower screen is attached/snapped to the rear console, as designed, mine has been very stable. I've never been concerned that it was flexing too much or in danger of departing the car - it's still pretty darn tight.

    Sorry, about the mention of the speed (120 miles), I was not bragging; here we have some back (desert) roads that we can do some spirited driving. Now, about the deflector I'm satisfied with it function at any speed, and thanks for all the info.

    At highway speeds, this deflector works really well with the passenger window raised anywhere from 1/2 up to fully up. Really cuts down on the turbulence...

    Yes, you are right for both the deflector and A/C, wife insist on it!
