Hello,

 

Does anyone know where I can find a L/H duct to be fitted behind the grille for a non-injection Mini and the accompanying air hose?

 

It is to take fresh air through to the passenger side vent. At the moment I just have hot air blowing in from the engine!

 

The usual website/shops don't seem to stock them...

 

Thanks,

 

E.

Thanks MiddletoM.

I contacted Somerford and they don't stock the duct either. They say it is no longer available/obsolete.

Any other leads? Or perhaps a workaround?

Thanks,

E

Try car builder solutions for the hose/pipe, and possibly the other parts needed

You can get all sizes of ducting flexible or rigid plastic on eBay.

I bought mine (pre-loved) from a trader at Himley.

Try mini dismantlers.

Good luck

I needed a piece of duct for the driver side and found some corrugated drain pipe at a hardware store that worked well. Perhaps you could find something that is meant for a different purpose that will work for you?

I used to buy all sorts of hoses from RS at my old job. Whatever size you could think. Prices were not so awesome though
