Tube 17465-MN5-000 alternative

Post by Toogzweire »



Hi,

When renewing the sub-air filter I noticed tube 17465-MN5-000 had a nick and a very small hole in it. I have been scrolling the internet, but this item seems to be EOL.
Do any of you guys know of an alternative?

It's only handling unpressurized air, so pretty much anything will work. I'd just buy a piece of generic hose (I think it's 5.5mm? Might want to measure it to be sure) along with a 90 degree elbow. Cut the hose in two, stick the elbow in between, and fit it in place.

Nope! Air gets drawn in through the filter, then through that hose and into the PAIR solenoid valves. So the pressure in that hose is the same as ambient air pressure - the only thing separating the air in that hose from the outside world is the filter media (a sponge).
