That haven't stolen it, I've sold some stock to them as sales have dwindled on here and I don't want them hanging around as they cost me a lot of money! Thanks for the heads up though Thumbs Up 2002 90 Td5 Station Wagon

Have you considered making something similar for lower vent for the Puma? I had the Mud Heat Deflector installed on mine but IMHO it is more of a heat Restrictor (in other words - a waste of time and money) 2009 Land Rover Defender 90 SVX Soft top 60th Anniversary Edition

I hadn't to be honest, purely because of the mud heater deflector.

Also I no longer have a puma so have nothing to design from.

It's definitely something I'd consider, though, if there was a hunger for it Thumbs Up 2002 90 Td5 Station Wagon

Wales 2007 Defender 90 Other CSW Trident Green

Now the weather is wet and cold and the drivers and passenger windows steam up. these vents if you position them correctly sends a blast of warm air on to those windows and clears them, absolutely brilliant. grafty99 has solved a problem that Land Rover never did about demisting side windows.

Hi Graffty99, received mine a couple of weeks back and fitted them today...... a very easy fit thanks.

I have a question that maybe you or one of the other members could answer....I have re-read the posts to see if this has happened to anyone else but can’t see it mentioned
.
With the vents fitted I have a gap at the bottom of the vent the width of the original cutout and about 5-6mm high which means the hot air is not fully going through the new vent...... do I need to make some sort of blacking plate to cover the slot? They are fitted to a 1998 300Tdi 90.

You can see the slot in the picture directly below the vent.

That is strange, It hasn't been mentioned to me before. They were designed from the dimensions on my defender and seal fully.

The only other issue I have had is that the factory holes in the dash were wonky causing the vents to fit incorrectly.

Looking at the pictures there is a similar looking gap in your dash. Are the vent bases square in the holes? The gap, however, definitely doesn't look like it'll seal by re drilling the screw holes. I can only put it down to defender tolerances I'm afraid. I can make you up a plate if required, however, it shouldn't effect performance too much.

Send me a PM with how you'd like to resolve this and we'll work something out Thumbs Up
