Mud Snow Cowl - Left Hand Drive
The MUD all-weather heater intake cowl is the MUD version of the traditional 'Snow Cowl' fitted to military specification Defenders.
The all-weather cowl will prevent snow, mud and leaves from entering the heater intake and reducing the Defender's heater performance.
The heater intake system is fitted with a water trap whose one-way valve is designed to allow water that enters the intake to escape. In reality this one-way valve collects debris and eventually blocks with sludge. Fitting the all-weather cowl prevents moisture build-up within the intake system.
The contours of the moulding perfectly follow the profile of the wing and fits directly over the existing grille.
The fitting kit contains replacement stainless-steel screws and black plastic screw covers. The screws are longer than the standard items to guarantee compatibility with chequer-plate equipped vehicles.
Unlike the metal military spec' item the MUD Snow Cowl is manufactured from ABS plastic. A rigid construction means damage is more likely to occur to the wing if the cowl is snagged when driving off-road. ABS was selected because it's the same material car-bumpers are made from and offers greater flexibility than steel or aluminium, yet remains strong.
Please note when selecting your snow cowl that for a Left Hand Drive (LHD) vehicle the cowl fits the RIGHT wing/fender heater intake.
