These 90-degree swivel breather fittings replace the original Land Rover Banjo Fittings. These fittings take the original 6mm pipe and have a 1/8 BSP thread, they are a swivel fitting, this way you can position the pipe where you want it to go, they are also supplied with our full wading kits.
They don’t fit the Defender Puma Gearbox as they don’t have a thread in the casing

Why do you need axle and gearbox breathers?
The standard Land Rover fittings have a small hole in the banjo bolt which tends to block up unlike these replacements as they have a larger hole that lets the air flow through.

The original breathers do rust over time which can cause the hole to block up. You do not want the axle breathers to block as when the gearbox, transfer box and axles warm up, the air will expand, which will cause pressure build-up and will force oil out past the seals. Along with this reason, when going into the water it will cause a vacuum on the gearbox or transfer box and axles this will cause water to be sucked in past the seals.

Our axle breathers are brass which prevents them from rusting which means they will not block up or break off. Having good breathers allows the axles or gearbox to breath when it needs to, not causing the pressure to build up which leads to other problems, which are above. You must extend the breather pipes higher than any water level you may go into, this way the water will not find its way in.
