Front differential vent piping

Where is this supposed to be routed on a defender 90, 300tdi? Mine came zip tied to the exterior of the left hand side radius arm and doesn't strike me as the standard fitment routing.

Cheers.

Not sure what is official, but I used three p clips to secure mine to the chassis, inner fender and wing top letting it vent just in back of the headlight mount, running over the steering box and under the air cleaner. I have a 2.5NA.

I think mine is zip-tied to the radius arm too.

Seen several radius arm zip ties. Any movement between the chassis end of the radius arm and the chassis itself is much less than the wheel movement. Less movement, less fatigue stress etc.

Zip ties on the radius arm is stock.

There are meant to be little clips that the zip ties go through. Item 7, NRC9246

Alright then. More getting accustomed to Land Rovers it is.

Also, thanks for the link - that site looks quite handy for things like this.
