    Hi Brian,

    Der Franzose is you best bet. Part no 32306 convoluted tube (black cardboard & aluminium) with no internal foam insulation is 12.99 Euro each.

    The same thing with internal foam insulation Part no 34528 at 18.90 each.

    Either of these are pretty much identical to the original tubing. The later tube certainly had internal foam, but not sure about 2nd nose cars>

    The tube without the foam gives better volume, the tube with the internal foam cooler air and less noise.

    There are two mesh end pieces 32265, which are fitted to the ends of the tube with a ligarex strap where they enter the heater or blower fan to stop insects.

    There were also two black sheet metal straps that went around the tubes, the same end as the mesh insect screen, and these were attached to simple sheet metal bracket that attached to the wings to stop the tubes coming out of the heater, and blower fan apertures.

    These aren't a spare part, but you will find the same part on later DS's. They were originally attached to the front guard air scoops with the Citroen strapping with the large split pin type winder.

    Hope this helps?

    Best regards,

    Greg

    Thanks for that Greg.As I see it, the problem with the second nose is that the tubing must go through an angle of almost 90 deg soon after leaving the air intake.(late cars are much easier).If that tubing you refer to is similar to that on late D,s then it is not flexible enough.

    Hi Brian,

    When you say a second nose D, what year are you talking about?

    With the air scoop under the headlamp?

    These pics may help Brian,
    Greg has pretty well covered it, the tube with the smaller OD will conform with a bit of encouragement. . .

    Hi Brian,

    Chris's pics are great.........

    If you car is late, you will need the tube in two sizes, the smaller dia where it joins the air intake, and the larger one where it fits into the heater intake. I didn't give part not for the bigger tubes.

    I've have some tubes for our own cars, and they are very flexible and the 90 deg necessary for the larger tube to turn into the heater is easily achieved.

    Note:

    On the original Citroen tubes, there was a slit on either side of the lower tube take make the fit onto the air scoop easier. To stop the tube tearing further, a hole was punched at the end of the slit (similar to what yo find on the various rubber flaps in the wheel arches)

    Best regards,

    Greg

    Thanks a lot Greg and Chris,I think I can cope now.One annoying thing is that the Air Inlet tubes have barbs on them to make it more difficult to slide the flexible tube on!
