Default Rubber pipe from T piece to throttle body

Hi, 2007 XKR convertible needs the above piece of rubber as original has a split. Being told by Jag that it only comes with the T piece - 700 !!! Has anyone come across this before and if so, where can I get one or can I manufacture something that will work ??

Foregoing pictures, is there a way to use rubber hoses, worm clamps and plastic T-fittings from any Auto Parts store?

Would the "T-piece" you mention be what the workshop manual calls the "throttle body elbow"? If so, I assume the hoses you're after would be the two short ones shown in this diagram:

Sorry Guys, I am new to this so the pictures are a bit large !!!

As you can probably see, the single one is the one that is split.

Cheers for any help.

Apparently that T-piece is the "Intake Air Resonator". It could be worth checking the damaged connector for manufacturer or part no. details - you might find it is a standard FoMoCo part, or something that might be available from the OEM.

Failing that, take it to a decent general motor factor and show it to them; they may be able to find a similar connector that will fit.

.... or a hardware store. Could possibly find a rubber slip-adapter of the right size for one/hundredth the cost of an auto part.

I'm with Cee Jay on this one, it looks very similar to a flexible rubber coupling used in plumbing.

A plumbing fitting might have problems with the rather different environment in the engine bay. Heat & vibration aren't necessarily what plumbing stuff is designed for.

Thanks Guys,

I'll have a look around and see what I can find.

Might just use self amalgamating tape for temp repair until I find something better.

Cheers to all.

I agree with you heat might be a factor, but from the looks of the oem part you could argue that it wasn't designed for the application either...

I believe the service part is sold separately by JLR under the part number NJA3554AA.

Have the bloke at the Jaguar agency check this part number for you. Should be about 36.47 inc Vat.

FIGSEY, how did you know to replace that part?

Were you getting error codes (P0101)?
Hissing sounds?
Air leaks?

I didn't get much chance to hear any hissing sounds as the supercharger was clattering so much it sounded like a diesel on steroids !!!

I think it split when it was taken off !!!

Seriously though, if it was like that, when the car was running, it didn't sound too bad and the performance was pretty good as well.

I don't think you would ever hear it as it's between the air cleaners and throttle body. No vacuum to make a hiss. Unless it was splayed apart from the parts being on a bind I don't think it would leak enough air to code.

Mine will give an imbalance code if I'm caught in a cross wind after taking the air cleaner inlets off.

I got this of of Amazon to replace my broken rubber adapter. It works great. I had to trim it shorter with a utility knife but it works perfect for this piece. I ordered NJA3554AA at first and it did not work well so i measure both intake and throttle body and found this coupler to be close.

HPS HTSR-325-375-BLK Silicone High Temperature 4-ply Reinforced Reducer Coupler Hose, 40 PSI Maximum Pressure, 3" Length, 3-1/4" > 3-3/4" ID, Black
