Hi All,

I've justed fitted a UniFilter air filter to my Deli, but I noticed under the cover behind the drivers seat that I have what looks like a missing hose. There is an air duct that starts in the front right corner (as you face the rear) and goes through the wheel arch and another one that comes off the filter box that ends on the front left. The one on the left blows cold air when the engine is running.

So could somebody take a peek at their air filter and tell me if they have a hose connecting these two ducts. I can't see a hose in the pix in the EGR mod post.

I don't have any problems with temp or running at all, but I presume the ducts are supposed to be connected.

Thanks

Dom

ps. Sorry if the description is hard to understand.

Not overly sure...but think this is an actually part of the design, my own thoughts are that if you "scoop" water throu the front intake this "gap" will allow the water to drop out of the bottom of the vehicle instead of floodin' straight throu' to your filter... :? ...like I said, only my own view, I'm sure someone on here will either put me right.. Embarassed ...or inform me of a good guess... Laughing

I see what your thinking, makes sense.

Your deli is same year and looks identical to mine so probably a
bit of an odd coincidence if it's missing from both.

Wait and see if anybody else replies, might have to get my head in a
couple more Deli's too, just to put my mind at rest :?

Thanks

Dom

There was mention of this on the POCUK forum some time back and I think it turned out to be normal....

absolutely as designed. There is not supposed to be a connection between the air inlet and the filter!

Well they do say it's a thin line between genius and madness!! Laughing

Thanks for the replies. Having owned several really s*@t cars and vans
I panic when I see things apparently missing. Embarassed

Thanks

Dom

yep - non on mine either.
Sort of thing I'd forget to put back anyway, so it saves me not doing it!
