mmm....... could do with one of those too. I repaired mine twice with mini Ty-raps but it always broke again in another place as the plastic obviously goes brittle with age. :cry:

The problem seems to be that the 2 clear plastic pipes pull tight and wreck the plastic 'T'piece.

The backward one goes into the inner wing and presumably the plastic liner moves and pulls it tight.

Re-routing the pipe may save the life of the 'T' piece.

If pushed I suppose you could make a substitute using a washer 'T' and some fuel tube as joiners.

You could just tell us rather than make us beg!

I think it's more that the curve of the two clear pipes go above the bonnet line and the bonnet smacks them each time it closes. :cry:

I think it's just old age. They go hard and crack, buy a new one and you'll see how very supple they are! old ones are like rock.....

So Kitch, anyone we know?? Or is it all a bit cloak and dagger?? :wink:
