Sounds like it could be the vapour separator unit. Not too sure what it does but possibly similar to a catalytic convertor on a car. In any case - OUCH

Surely you haven't been nicked already Pete.

We don't start patrols until tomorrow.

jlanng, did your mechanic say why you needed this evaporator? - was it because it's broken, service or something else?
also, how old is your engine? - seeing something like this needing replacing on an identical engine to mine is somewhat concerning for the old visa card considering the DF140 hasn't been out that long really.

Thanks,

-Alex
