Default Heater hoses

Had the heater hose to the matrix develop a hole, so I had to bypass the pipe with the hole in and link the other pipe back onto the return connection.

Is there a silicone hose kit that has them for the A/C 940 B230FT? The DO88 ones are only for LHD that I have found.

I don't think there are any silicone hoses for the 7/9xx range but you should be able to find a normal replacement hose here :

On the upside, the original rubber hose has lasted 20+ years so another rubber one stands a good chance!

Personally I'm not a massive fan of silicone hoses but this is a high wear area (rear of engine with no space and lots of pipes etc) and I have modified the car so it does take a bit more punishment now (especially when my brother borrows it).

I don't mind replacing it with a standard hose it just I don't see it lasting as long as the original did.
