DefenderVent - New Side Vent

Anyone use these yet??

http://www.wiberg-wiberg.com/vis.asp?v=gruppe&gid=88

Looks easy to install and make sense. Click on the PDF for the install.

I'm ordering one to try it out.

Looks neat - I love the Germans for stuff like this. Thats a lot of effort to solve a small problem.

Anyway, I'll look forward to hearing about how it works out, I could definitely see myself installing that.

I need help with my german. Do they only ship the end vents and hose or is it is a replacement vent with the extra air outlet on it as well.
It's a brilliant idea either way.

Len, click on the PDF and it explains the process. You drill holes in your current ends and add the round vents.

I think he was referring to the defroster vents, which I think are supplied new with an outlet for the tube to attach to.

Yeah sorry, completely misread his question. I agree it looks like they give you new vents.

Just got emailed back. They send new vents with the "plug" for the smaller hose for the side vent, the hoses, and the side vent piece for the side of the dash.

Neat idea. I've always wondered why rover hadn't done exactly that-its so simple

I always wondered why they couldn't actually 'de-mist' the whole windsheild. LOL!

I may have a look myself and see if a abs plumbing joint can be glue in to do the same thing and keep the original vent. You can get male connectors with a foot to cement to the side, drill your hole and then pick up a small vent for the grab handle. hmmm............

When I converted to LHD I did the trick shown on ECR's website where you open up the hole through the bulkhead and the heater plenum/lower dash to match the output flange of the heater box. This increases the flow from the heater by about 45%-a huge difference. The windsheild clears really quickly now and I'm running a cold natured diesel. The doors are still another matter.

I am very interested in doing this modification during the summer when I get back from Iraq next year. I have heard about this several times, but never could find any specifics on how to do it, and exactly what shape/dimensions to cut when I do. Does anyone that has done this have pics and details? If I'm going to drain my A/C and coolant to do this, I'm hoping to eliminate any surprises, and definitely don't want to screw this up, as this would be labor intensive to recover from.

Errr, we can't take the credit for that one. We source the vents from the designer/manufacturer Wiberg & Wiberg in Denmark.

FWIW. The replacement screen vents supplied with the kit also has a larger opening than the stock vents.

LR did offer their own version of sorts for cold-weather spec Wolf Defenders. LR used new dash end panels fitted with (crude) mesh vents and a replacement heater air box assembly that had a couple of piped outlets to connect to the side window vents. I have been lead to believe (from a customer) that this kit is no longer available although I must confess I've never tried to source the parts myself.
