Hi All

Looking for the aluminium connecting pipes that connect the the evaporator (inside the heater box) to the flexible air con hoses.
These are attached by steel nuts onto the aluminium thread, and the aluminium thread on mine has been stripped.
Does anybody have this part available.

Thanks

No unfortunately not, I have spent ages looking on the web and no pictures are available.
I think they were probably designed for right hand drive cars where the evaporator has its pipes coming from the centre of the unit.
To confuse matters further there are several alternatives, mine are just straight forward connecting pipes that go through the bulkhead for the flexible air con hoses.
I guess they will be difficult to find because the aluminium thread welds itself to the steel nut and become impossible to separate, without damaging the thread

Those are the flexible hoses that attach to the evaporator.
The evaporator in the drawing is for a left hand drive car and does not show the connecting pipes Iím looking for.
I have tried to use a left hand drive evaporator (ie without the connecting pipes) but in wonít fit properly in the heater box that is situated under the lower dashboard.

Image is for right hand drive however I checked without VIN number so those pipes might be hidden somewhere else or they come with heater box.

I'd try to contact company which specializes in high pressure hydrolic pipes repair. Like Hansa-Flex - I see they have office in UK or any other company which works in that field
