I have managed to snap the large (about 85mm) corrugated hose that goes from the heater to the inner wing. My excuse is it does seem pretty brittle, out of a 1978 Mni. As the usual Mini parts vendors are listing it as obsolete where am I likely to get a decent match?

Assuming yours is the plastic one, thus might work

Never seen one in the flesh, not sure how accurate a repro it is - maybe some one else has seen one ?

The retro mini ones are mk 1 ones .
I’ve found 4 out varying in length from 14 1/2 inches to 16 inches long.
Just shout if they are of any use :D

Hi, thanks for the offer of your original hoses but I have found a supplier of the hoses part number 346999A, a company called Rimmer Bros. based at Lincoln & it fits perfectly. They are £12.13 including postage & VAT.
