Elan dash-level vents

PostPost by: TomR » Thu Jun 15, 2017 2:52 pm

I'm looking for a pair of the little push-flap vents used on a standard Elan on each side of the dash. Anyone know if these are reproduced or maybe someone has used ones? I did a search but didn't see a source. Thanks, TomR

I assume you mean the approx. 30mm diameter vents. They are sometimes referred to as eyeball vents.
They are not usually available nor reproduced as far as I know.
I believe they were used on the Rover P6.
Just keep asking and searching.

Thanks for the replies.

To be clear, I'm looking for the straight-through vents as #14 in the illustration. I normally think of the round ball swivel vents like those on the Cortina and +2 as eyeball vents. I imagine I could make up a functional set if need be but OEM would be nice. Tom

These may be the right vents - http://www.ebay.com/itm/ROVER-P5-FRESH-AIR-VENTS-/162548786382?hash=item25d8a9a4ce:g:iJ0AAOSwceNZPAKV

It's difficult to see from the photo.

I think I may also have one, hit me up if you're still looking. I'm in Australia though.
