Heater tap/valve

Post by frog »

Hi all,

I have one or two used heater valves/pipes but I'm after a new one if anyone knows where I could find it?

Best,
Chris.

I guess this one goes on the list with tail blazers, sunroof wind deflectors, head lamp protectors, ph2 16v rear mud flaps, GT cardboard intake pipes, abs sensors and digits!

So has anyone engineered a substitute heater tap that might work? Surely there is something that could be made to fit?

It's the top plastic pipe that breaks off on all the ones I've seen. I was thinking I might sleeve the inside of a good spare one with some metal to strengthen it. A new one would be easier though.
