Somebody  asked the same question not so long ago and a link was posted ( poss somerford minis )  but I can’t find it now hopefully they will see this and reply. Or you may have more luck in searching the forum than I did .

Good luck

If originality isn't important you can buy a length of black pvc type ducting from eBay that has wire coiled around it. It's springy and if you cut it over size it wedges itself in. It's 83mm if my memory serves me well. Had it on my clubman for a couple of years without a problem.

You can get some ventilation ducting that would do the job perfectly

I cut some off an old Hoover I found in a skip. Fitted perfectly!

Managed to make one out of an old Morris Minor air intake. See, it sometimes pays to hold on to things ‘the boss’ says are junk!

 

cheers all
