    Has anyone come across a solution to the NLA parts 1, 2, and 3 below? The hose and clamp seems easy enough to find a replacement but the nozzles are a mystery. Thanks in advance!

    I recently replaced my broken vents with those from a Bavaria. The fit is perfect and I think they look better because they don't have that dopey fin sticking up. Best to do the work with the windscreen out so you can clean everything up nice n pretty. I'll send some pictures- I'm very pleased with myself on this mod... and thanks Drew!

    Sorry, I do not, I know I sent it to Chris M, maybe he still has. I measured and contacted Volkswagon after market supplier and found some that worked, less than $20

    Yes the duct tube, I'll do some research and share what I find. Any part numbers or models you know of would be helpful

    I've looked for something similar on Porsche sites with no luck.

    I have a loose defroster vent on my workbench. I’ll check the outer diameter of the inlet fitting. This looks like a close match:
