Scuttle panel fuse board drain hole

Post by Navy » Sat May 23, 2020 11:54 am

Hello, I hope everyone is safe and well.
Just a quick question. The drain hole/hose under the fuses was blocked and when I pulled the hose out to release the water the rubber o ring fell apart/crumbled.
Anyone know the correct size I need to replace the o ring. The original is in bits and I cannot form a circle to measure.
It looks like 1" 1/2 but no idea the thickness.
Many thanks
André

Hello everyone, I measured the plastic hose connector to the base of the fuse box housing and my best guest is 32mm (inside diameter) x 3mm thickness (guess).
I've ordered one and hope it seals correctly. Someday someone may need this info.
Regards
André

I wish I could help but I no longer have an 850. Not sure that the V70/S70 are the same. I may be able to find a part number if it still is listed, but then so should a decent dealer parts guy. Problem there is I may get a part number but they don't give any specs for 'O' rings.

Let us know how you get on.

Neil.

I just ripped out an 850 fuse box and can measure this if you post a picture of where this is

Many thanks everyone for replying,
I went ahead and ordered a 32mm by 3mm o ring and It doesn't fit. I was simply not paying enough attention. I measured outside edge to inside edge and came up with 32mm which is at least 3mm too large.
I removed the plastic housing the o ring sits around and it's either a 27mm or 28mm. 28mm may not be snug enough.
It's under the engine bay fuse panel box and is a simple rain water drain hole.
Anyway I will photo the area tomorrow and post the exact location.
Many thanks again
André

Good evening. Sorry about the quality of the photos, my phone camera has seen better days. The last picture shows the hose exposed without the plastic insert.
