Air conditioning drain pipe

Postby D.R.F. » Sun Sep 10, 2017 11:38 am

Does anyone know of simple way to fit new drain pipe for air conditioning? The original
Ford pipe perished. A new item is £25! I've not been successful in finding a secondhand
one.I thought a length of clear plastic tubing would do the job but the "run" is such that the
pipe kinks,which would lead to another flood in the foot wells! Any advice would be
gratefully received.

How about spliting the plastic tube in two halves and just connect them with a 60 degree elbow? Some sealer at joint and voila!

Hi Guys
The bottom bit of the pipe is quite a small diameter so it's probably best to replace with some plumbing copper microbore pipe and just stretching the top of the existing pipe over the microbore. If you put too many restrictions into the pipe it will just block up even easier.
