This hose connects the two large outlets on the fan shroud to the heater boxes on all Type 1 engines. The hose is held in place using two
large hose clamps (part #MH28). Also known as a fresh air hose or tube, it has a 2" inside diameter (to fit over the ports on the fan shroud)
and is roughly 40" long so typically one hose can be cut in half and used to fit on both ports. The flame resistant hose is made of flexible
aluminum ducting and can withstand up to 450 degrees fahrenheit. It fits all Type 1 engines equipped with fresh air heater boxes and fan
shroud, which include 1961 to 1977 Standard Beetles, 1971 to 1979 Super Beetles, 1961 to 1974 Karmann Ghias, 1961 to 1971 Type 2s (Bus,
Single Cab, Double Cab), and 1974 Things.
The Fan Shroud Hoses are an often over looked portion of your VWs Cooling. Yes, of course they are for heating your VW but they also help direct the air flow of your Air Cooled VW! If your hoses are missing or torn, your fan shroud is blowing air uselessly out of the ducts instead of onto the heads and cylinders!
