Hi all,

Just trying to work out wether the breathers on the transmission (Auto) and axels of my 2002 Jackaroo already have extenders of not.

There are 3 breather type hoses that terminate at the near side firewall under the bonnet, one with filter, 2 without. I have traced them as best I could and there appears to be two breather points on the front axel, the hoses attach with nylon elbows.

I can't find where the third hose runs, but I'm guessing that maybe the one with the filter attaches to the Auto transmission breather?

Can anyone confirm this or tell me if I'm way off the mark?

The rear axel is easy to spot and terminates on a chassis rail at the floor pan.

On my '99 petrol manual Jackaroo the breathers are as you described. The 3rd hose is probably the transfer case. Hard to trace them as their not real visible behind the engine.

Thanks for the response Redjack.

I'm guess that the rear breather (floor pan height) will be the limiting factor for water crossing depth.

On my recently traded 92 V6 Jack, I extended the rear diff breather up to the engine bay and fitted a cheap filter to the end. It terminated next to the other breathers. Did plenty of water crossings in the 51/2 years I owned it with no probs.
I traded it on a 2001 TD Auto but haven't got around to the breathers yet. This provided a timely reminder.
