Fitting a Safari snorkel to a 200tdi land rover discovery

Fitting a Safari snorkel to a 200tdi land rover discovery

Even before I bought my discovery I had decided I had to fit a snorkel.  I decided on a safari snorkel because having spoken to a few people who had fitted them it seemed like a relatively simple job.  The kit does come with simple instructions, an easy to follow template along with every nut, bolt and clip that you need to fit.  The only real tools required are a 13mm spanner, drill, rivet gun and a jig saw. 

 I took a few photographs when we were fitting the discovery snorkel and so have included a brief description below.  This is not meant to be a complete fitting guide, it assumes you will eventually buy the kit and get the same instructions as I did.

Firstly we masked up the wing with tape as I couldn’t find a permanent marker anywhere so drawing on the tape was easier than straight onto the paint.

Then we taped the template to the wing

and marked the holes with a felt tip pen.

Cutting the hole and drilling the bolt holes really is quite a scary process.  As the saying goes – measure twice and cut once!

The top of the snorkel fitted to the windscreen pillar with rivets.

connecting safari snorkel to airboxI found that the connection to my airbox was a little loose.  I added some inner tube inbetween to improve the fit between the snorkel and the airbox.
