Ok not long had my 2013 antara so not yet clued-up on alternative parts/accessories etc, so please forgive what may be the very basic of basic questions. I'm in Thailand right now, as you will know the captiva is "our" car over here...... Or is it? I'm off to a car market tomorrow where I can pick up some wind deflectors, day running lights etc and told these will be a fraction of UK prices..... Wind deflectors (front/rear) 24... Now I know that sounds cheap but if they appear ok it may be worth a punt... Might even venture into a local Chevrolet dealer to find out the price of genuine ones here... So in a long winded fashion (as is usual for me). Will the captiva wind deflectors fit the antara and other accessories for that matter?

At 24 I would as you say take a punt, and when you get home if they don't fitput them on the Captiva forum or flebay. Think you would probably get your money back.

Depending on the model of captiva. For example the USA version is the same as the Antara but the UK version is not the same. But Like Dave says it might be worth a try if you get them cheap enough.

Thanks for the messages, was thinking along the same lines about reselling if they don't fit... Just thought that as the main body parts (ie doors) look the same there would hopefully be no issue and it would be a "done deal". Any way, will try to get a set and will post results...

Ok..... Spent the last 24 hrs running after captiva's , and seeking them out in car parks etc. They all appear to have the same wind deflectors. They are stick on ones with double sided tape.... Went to the car shop 24 pounds they even had captiva written on them (not sure if this would come of with t-cut etc) went to chevy dealer they had the same ones. The girl I spoke too really didn't know about the antara and if they would fit... That said I'm sure lots would have been lost in the translations (Both ways) but she did say thet. they were also put on with the help of a heat gun or perhaps it was glue gun. Now you may think that they would fall off easily, but given the extreme weather here (very high temperatures, and it's raining in biblical terms at the moment) I suspect that they do indeed stay on. I didn't buy as the stick on and possible glue put me off, but the more I think about it, I probably should have got them. Off elsewhere tomorrow so will look for another opportunity. BTW Chevy dealer wanted 42 for what looked like the same deflectors.

Was unable to buy some wind deflectors - however, I did note that there were some anatara's running around with WD without Captiva written on them - which makes me believe that there may be some "generic" WD's out there - so the possibility is that they would have fitted - kicking myself as I should bought the first one's that I saw foe 24

Climair!

I've used these Germans on several cars and they're the best, they fit.

Put it this way, if you get a dealer to deflectors to a Benz then they'll be the Climair make with TUV approval: Opel is German too ...

The Climair fronts use no glue or sticky, they're a mechanical fit. The rears use a double sided sticky but it's automotive quality, plus they don't entirely rely on the tape to hold them in place.

They do have "ClimAir" plastic labels which are well stuck on but do come off with a bit of hard work with your thumbnail (nothing harder) and a wash and brush up.

Btw - Britemax Black Max is fine enough to optically polish plastic lenses (or yellowed headlamp covers).

edit - tpyos fixed

fyi, EGR Autos seem to make the OEM wind deflectors for Holden and their Captiva5 /is/ an Antara.
i.e. they should fit perfectly. They do use 3M auto sticky-tape (which is more than good enough for our number plates). They are available here but you have to hunt them down. I have not used this make but do have their bonnet protector which does fit perfectly.

I went with ClimAir because I know them. I am still waiting for them to arrive from Germany: the dark smoked (translucent black) are only made to special order, and so we wait ...
