@ dani4JB1T
thanks a lot, I like my little truck to.. its a fun not using a Land Rover or Landcruiser to change the car. This types are very common to be changed for desert trips, but using our little car and preparing it for long distance range is different, so therfore the people ara astonished when I`ll tell them I was twice now in Marocco desert, and last year even at west Sahara and Mauretania. (West Africa)

By the way - where at the Atacama desert ist your Location? and what about your engine - is it running well again?

dit you see our new threat -called " Berichte" we will collect all our repair`s on Frontera

so long, by Walter

PS.: if you want to, pls lets have some pictures of yours, car and region where you live
Gruß Walter

yeah...i second you on that.

Well I live in Antofagasta, Chile. IN this desert you can find almost everything...since arid coast, sand dunes, small rivers, long flat dusty lands with extreme hot, to high altitudes, rare flora & fauna, extreme cold. I have some pics here, but im going to upload some more for you. Also you can check my galleries:


about my car here

about my trips and other stuff here

I have checked the "berichte" section, and found some great articles from you, and very clean pictures....just awesome !

gruss! :D

Hello everyone,My Names Ian From England.

This is my snorkel Its an Safari ss100hf fitted to a B series 2000 Swb 2.2RS petrol And cost £240 English pounds


This snorkel was bought from Devon4x4
heres the website http://www.devon4x4.com/shop.php


First off, a few pics of what your money (£240 quid) buy`s you :lol: :lol:

Bild

Bild

Bild

Start by removing the airbox and connecting pipes,under the bonnet

Bild

Bild

Bild

Bild

Bild

Next hold the snorkel in place,and tape the template in place, (an extra pair of hands is usefull at this stage)

Bild

Bild

And when your satisfied, remove snorkel, and secure template with masking tape. You can now mark the hole onto the wing.

Bild

Bild

It was at this point we removed the wheel

Bild

Bild

And the inner plastic arch trim

Bild

Pics showing inner arch

Bild

Bild

Whoops forgot to mention the chief mechanic, Aka Adrian (Tiger on the forum) Whos help was much appreciated.

Bild

Now time for a break, and decide wether to go for it

Bild

After drinking the beers, time for action, Using a medium sized drill bit, drill to the inside line of the mark you drew on the wing, not too close though, and doesnt matter if the holes dont connect together

Bild

Should look like this when finished so you can use a pair of snips to cut between the holes as in the next pic

Bild

And when youve done that, you end up with this

Bild


Next we used a die grinder to smooth the lines of the hole,and to take it to the line we had drawn on the wing



Click here....Bild



Once that is done,blow all the remaining swarf away with an air line

Bild

and use some paint on the edges of the hole to stop rusting

Bild

now remove interior trim,so you can see the inner roof.

hold the snorkel in place in the hole, and mark the holes on the roof for the securing bracket and drill them out, we drilled all the way through and used nuts and bolts, instead of the supplied captive nuts.

Bild

Bild

Now the snorkel can be bolted in place at the roof, and the two holes drilled in the wing for securing to the inner assembly.

Here is where it might differ from mine to other models.

on my fronty, the inner piece supplied was too long, so we cut it down the middle, i secured it at snorkel end, then held the other end up to the inner wing hole, and marked where i was to cut it again,and it worked out about 2 inches needed to be removed.

when it is cut, you can hold the two pieces together, and using a soldering iron, "plastic weld" the two halfs together by heating the joint all the way around the assembly.
I then used some denso tape, to tightly wrap around the joint, to safeguard against leaks. The assembly was then bolted in to the snorkel, and using sealant to be sure, connected in to the airbox.

Heres pics under the bonnet, be sure to seal the places highlighted.

Bild

Bild

Bild
And heres the finished pics


Bild

after been put to the test

hi Ian.
welcome here between Opel Frontera enthusiastics
very well done! good job. The test seems to bee ok..
some of our friends with Frontera asked for your snorkel, but our cars are left hand drive and the air box as well the snorkel must be on the other side of the car, do you know if they are available?
oh yeah.. its very kind of Devon to send two beers for you and the mechanics

Say, has a Snorkel for this here are the installation instructions and drilling template ?! hmm To have some installed but here ... Did the snorkel and mounting hardware, but of course I do not view the attachment and do not want Drill holes when I know net 100% that they fit ...

Thank you,

Sagt mal, hat einer für diesen Snorkel hier noch die Montageanleitung und die Bohrschablone?! hmm
Den haben doch einige hier verbaut...
Habe den Snorkel und Montageteile, aber so ganz blick ich die Befestigung nicht und will keine
Löcher bohren wenn ich net 100% weiß das sie passen...

Sonny
