Hi ya all,
I recently had my local ARB rep fit a snorkle to my '98 V8 Disco.
My immediate problem is getting the rubber hose between the manifold and the air cleaner, to stay on.
When the air cleaner is repositioned, the origional hose was cut down to fit in between, but it keeps falling off.
Has anyone else had the same problem, and if so how did you fix it? Is there an after market replacement hose?

Cheers all,

gday barry.
first thing i would do is take it back to your local arb guy.
thats the reason we pay them good money so things like this dont happen.
back by popular demand

2 points ...

1. Stick it to the ARB blokes, my guess is they would have charged you 1 arm, 2 legs and the virginity of your maiden aunt (long deceased). Sounds like they cocked up and that's not good enough.

2. If it's water crossings you're hoping to cater for...don't forget the coil behind the passenger headlight, unless it's been relocated. That's where the gooses put it on my 95/96 model. On overcast sky had you reaching for the WD40.

Best of luck and giv'm heaps.Rosco

The gooses to which I am referring are the original designers...
