Fitting wind deflector - solved 'how to'.

Hi,
Realoem shows the the brackets are included with the wind deflector, 54347117745. Brackets are not listed separately. Brackets for the boot lid have, however, a separate part number, 54347117751, and look quite similar on images, except that there is a L-shaped part attached to them. That could, again looking at images, be easily removed.

Wen’t to the garage to compare them and the brackets look identical as far as I can see. The boot lid brackets and their L-shaped part are held together by two plastic rivets only.

Thank you so much for your efforts. I actually have a boot lid set on order so will check it out when it arrives. I eventually found the part numbers for the individual items.

Did you find a separate part number for the roll hoop brackets (not the boot brackets) too?

Yeah a guy on FB directed me to a Dutch BMW site which has the part numbers. Link below.

Searched realoem with the the part numbers (54347117749, 54347117750) and there are two almost identical diagrams on realoem: One under retrofitting/conversion/accessories and one under folding top section. The folding top section’s diagram has the individual part numbers.

Hello. Sorry to resurrect such an oldie but a goodie, but I wonder if anyone can help me with the hardware (screws)?

I bought the center deflector and the roll bar mounting brackets for my 2006 Z4 MR, but neither came with screws. Can anyone say what they are?

Thanks for the tips to drill.

Chris

Hello,
The answer was actually about two posts up, referencing Realoem.

Thanks so much for the quick reply! I missed that in the real OEM list... totally glanced over it. Need to slow down sometimes!

Thanks for the help and thread! @sure2drive, your pics helped tremendously. Very nerve-wracking to drill the first hole, but lined up perfectly and after that it was one bit only! Black plug caps on the way.
