Hi, I am trying to work out how the pipe fits around the back of my M45 supercharger by the washer bottle. I am part way through pitting it to my 1991 1.6 with PAS and A/Con, but I can not work out where the pipe fits as there is always something in the way. Does anybody have a decent photo showing the layout. The instructions are for a L/H/D vehicle and have no pictures.

Thanks, Matt

There is, or at least for the 1.8 kit, a secondary kit for a car with ABS. It uses a plastic elbow and bits of piping to replace the cast elbow.
iirc it's about ?100 from Moss. The reroute is far from perfect though, the flexi hose rubs against the bypass valve and ABS box!

Post a pic of where you mean. I fitted my Mk1, 1.6, with AC and PAS without a hitch.

The washerbottle needed removing so I brought a washer bag and fixed it in the same place to the bulkhead to give me more space.

This must be what you mean by something in the way.

There is by no means loads of room but it does fit nicely with the washerbottle moved.

I removed my air con in its entirity & fitted a Suzuki cappucchino washer tank in the gap in front of the drivers side wiper linkage. Loads of room!

I'll take my camera over at the weekend as the car is at my parents house 10 miles up the road. Unless I am missing something there is an what looks like an aircon pipe bang on where I need my pipework to run. Mine is slightly different to yours Bert, I wish it wasn't though
. I will try and explain a bit better with a photo

Yes it probably it an aircon pipe but it should fit but very close if not touching. Let me see if I can find a pictur of my old engine bay not sure I took many of that side when I was installing.

Remove washer bottle and bend the AC pipes out the way.

There are no better instructions than that really.

Every car is slightly different some kits fit straight in, others need lots of bending.

This is the problem. The narrow hose is ok as I can bend that out of the way. The thicker pipe below is too wide to bend and lifts the air pipe up too high. The only thing I can think of is to cut the pipe in the middle and use a hose to either extend the pipe to go around the back of the aircon pipes of to bend and cut infront of the aircon pipes. I can not think of another way around the problem?
