I've had a good look round and see that this is no longer available.
Some of the components are, but the snorkel tube itself is the problem.
I'm thinking of getting some made up, but need to borrow one so it can be copied.
Is anyone able to help?

You should also specify if you need one for a round head light or square headlight van..

Yes, good point. I always forget the important stuff!
It's for square headlights.
Cheers for that

Hi,
is there anyone with installed snorkel?

I found one complete snorkel, but pipe has bad shape for connection to air intake tube .

Can you take a photo "behind the grill"?

Just use a piece of flexible corrugated ducting. Problem solved.

Hardly a waterproof solution though mate is it. Whole point is the thing breathes from a dry source. Find some decent rubber is a much better idea.

If the ducting is a good fit it should be as good as the original, which is just a push on fit anyway. Then if you want to add extra waterproofing it can be done various ways. I like to use self amalgamating silicone tape myself. What do you mean by a decent bit of rubber nooberdoober?

I have posted a link below for a cad file so you can 3D print the Snorkel Elbow part if you need! Someone has had the snorkels re-manufactured and added this .cad to help folks that don't have it.
This is from VWLT.co.uk so credit goes to them and the guy that created it. 

Having said that, the parts you have look correct. Maybe you just need to fiddle with the fitment? Check http://vwlt.co.uk/4x4-snorkel/
