My 4.0 Celebration has a leaky pipe part no MHD7360BC. We have tried to track down a replacement from all the usual sources including breakers without success. I live in Cornwall and there appears to be no one locally who can help.
I would be very greatful if anyone could advise where I could obtain a replacement.
Many thanks Keith.
If none of the usual suspects (Grublogger, Eurojags &c) have a used one, can you take the original to a pipe fabricator? It doesn't look too outrageously difficult, and a google search of 'air conditioning hoses Cornwall' should bring up a few phone numbers to ring. Failing that there are national chains of pipe fabricators who could probably help.

I'm told the problem seems to be that Celebration models (and possibly others) use thin alloy pipe which corrodes internally and pinhole leaks appear. No longer available new, and repairs are difficult due to the nature of the pipework. There must be a company able to supply to the same pattern as Jaguar OE!!
I managed to get a replacement from Gruglogger and seems to be OK at present. David Marks was very helpful and suggested that if they cannot get replacements he gets them repaired. might be worth asking him who he goes to for repairs. Good luck! Regards Keith.
ps: we lived in East Looe from 1992-98. Wonderful.
My own approach was to buy the CCC4558 part which is the same pipe but lacking the boss for the pressure switch fitted to the later models. I had a boss turned up and then had the pipe welded into it. This wasn't easy as the pipe is thin alloy.
Has anyone overcome this issue in any other way?
