Is this air cooling hose in the correct position?

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I recently got my Evora (2010 NA) back after a clutch change and noticed this air cooling hose in the engine bay (see attached photo).  I've only had the car a short while so I'm not an expert but I don't remember the hose terminating in this position before?  

Just wanted to check the hose is terminating in the correct position or if I need to re-route it or should it be attached to something else?

It seems like it will just be blowing cold air over the top of the engine which doesn't seem correct to me?

 

thanks in advance ...

anyone .. ?? 

Would appreciate it if any fellow Evora owners could take a quick look into their engine bay and see where the hose connected to the right hand air duct ends up.

thank you.

Doesn't look right. As far as I remember it should point downwards. There are pics on the web of cars with the rear clam off. Just google Evora engine...

Should be going the other way to take in air from the side vent...more like this pic.

thanks for the help guys

Looking at the pic darcivic00si posted, I'm guessing that the exposed end of the hose near the fuel filler cap is connected to the air vent on the rear clam when present.  So the open end of the hose that I have currently pointing in the void above the engine should be pointing towards the bulkhead or connected to something towards the bulkhead?

Is it item 3 on here? Looks like the end sticking into the engine bay on yours should be round the other way connected to the side intake piece.

Mine (an S so might be slightly different as where yours is open into the engine bay it'd be pointing right at the nose of the blower) seems to work like that although the hose looks shorter. The open end on mine goes froward in the engine bay and ends sort of in line with the rear of the engine all at the same horizontal level. It's zip tied near the end to hold it steady.

That hose should be forward of the engine, cooling the along the 'back' of the engine as you look at it.

Bruss is right, I've just been out to my 2014 NA and taken a few phone pictures for you. Hopefully should clarify things :)

And here’s a photo of mine - it goes to the front of the bay and sits inside a cable tie.

Thanks to this thread, I'll be rerouting the one on mine too as the open end is currently pointing towards the boot.
