I'm looking for the clips that hold on the vanagon diesel airbox. Have the 2 short ones but missing the 4long ones.

Also need the airbox hose that is oval where it attaches to the airbox. Any ideas where these can be located? Cheers, Paolo.

Check with Brickwerks, in the UK. I think they have both parts you're looking for.

I looked on Brickwerk's site, briefly. Now, I'm not sure sure about the airbox clips...

I believe the long clips are 068129797B.

The rubber intake elbow/hose is 068129967 (or 068129967A?).

Both are NLA from VW, so your best bet may be eBay, US or Germany.

Edited to correct dimensions:
You can also fabricate a replacement for the intake elbow using off-the-shelf reinforced automotive ducting. This is somewhat complicated by the fact that each end requires a different diameter. As I recall, 3" ID ducting is a very snug fit over the air filter box, requiring a DIY step-down adaptor at the connection to the cyclone/water separator, which is something closer to 2.5"

A great replacement airbox hose is an exhaust bellows from a Mercruiser stern drive. Just fit one to my 82 Diesel.

I'm having the same problem with trying to find the longs clips. Anybody claiming to have them wants $$ and then $$$ to ship them to Ontario. So I went with a cheaper solution that seems to be working out so far -- zip ties/cable ties.

A 6" zip tie will make a loop that will fit (with a little fiddling) over the the plastic catches of the air filter box. Nice and snug, and holding up fine, no slip.

Yes. That is a real 068129797B clip in the photo at upper right. Everything else is a humble zip tie.

Zip ties are one of my favorite things.
