this is the actual item.


It neglects to say if it is the ID or the OD

So in order to possibly prevent this from happening again, I have ordered 1 metre of 28.5mm convoluted pipe to take the water away from the nearside of the scuttle panel, I also took off the arrangement at the offside as it was well and truly blocked with leaves and other stuff, what I need now is suggestions on what I can use to secure the scuttle end of the pipe, I've been searching Google but not found anything suitable.

Any suggestions are welcome, on the self build I used the cut down silicone nozzle but it kept blocking hence this larger bore pipe.
For a friends van I also found the silicone gun nozzle too small as well, then used a brass electrical gland fitting, discarding the large bit that’s used to stop water ingress on the cable then attaching a larger pipe onto the lower threaded section, this certainly gives a larger diameter drain hole. The thread on the scuttle side can be cut down to the minimum required thread length to secure the vey thin securing nut that I fixed with epoxy.

I did spot this yesterday, but they never give dimensions.

I did consider nicking one of Lizs piping nozzles too, but I may live to regret that.

Not sure if these will fit but they sell em in B&Q on there own, about twice the size of a normal nozzle so might do the business, got some and got the hose so I'll have a look.

Oooopssss Kev. How did you manage to do that?

Ray.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

As said the wiring and the ECU have been into before we go it. I just hope this is the end of our woes with this van or I'll be getting rid of it.

Ouch, that is a bitter blow, very sorry to hear that, like you I hope it sorts it out once and for all. Have you any clue why a previous owner mucked about with the wiring ? We’re they trying to remove an immobiliser or what ?

There seems absolutely nothing to be gained by them doing that that I can think of.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

I think they had water ingress into the sparky stuff under the scuttle too Dave,


I dug out my cone drill set yesterday biggest was 33mm so I'll use that and see if I can find my die grinder set to open it out gradually, it is a very awkward place to drill too, but the hole is already there, not sure if I can block it and drill in another place as there is a big lump in the way.
