Approx 3mm ID silicone by 3m long is plenty. best to get from Elk or similar as they seem to work for most (I got the Elk stuff and it has a good size wall thickness and expands out easily for connection to points greater than 3-4mm).

Cheers Pete,

I had a look back thru the other posts and noone really mentioned lenght etc . Its something I need to do as I get the feeling the vacuum pipe to the dump valve is on its way out as my car seems to just die out all of a sudden every now and again.

Whether or not this is the problem doesnt matter but the pipes are in dodgy nick and need replacing regardless .

Cheers
Michael

hi,
the best thing to do is order approx 3- 4 metres from elkpats
when it arrives take each vac hose off seperately and measure it against the new pipe and cut them to the same lengh
thats how i did it ,
looks good to

That's how I did mine too. It looks and work a treat.

I ordered 5 metres and had about 2 metres left. Which my brother has now decided he wants...
