I can confirm this pipe works a treat, fitted one today and the length is perfect
The pipe/t piece is all one unit and both ends just push right on, will dig out the part number
cheers pauly really appreciate it

Well I've had a crack at it this evening as I had a bit of spare time. I followed the guide already covered in depth by @ZipcodeUK. Very good write up so big thanks for that.
I've been sent the newly discovered longer cooling pipe to test if it works however @Pauly beat me to it.
Here is my attempt, I'm happy if you have suggestions or comments on what I've done. please note my coloured drawn on bits vary per photo.

Firstly, Here is the pipe in question, Please note the two different ends.

The red circled in as a neat smooth finish and this fits onto the glove box side, the blue circled end its roughly chopped and fits bottle cooler section.

This is the grommet that needs removing, boring photo but it may help to know what you're feeling for.

Here is a photo of the pipe fitted and a rough routing

Blue goes to glove box, Yellow is the T section and Red goes to bottle Cooler.

Here is the glove box cooler vent that the pipe goes onto, this is already in your dash.

and finally I found it nearly impossible to route my bottle cooler plastic pipe through the gap that @ZipcodeUK did, I currently cant see any issues with my way but only time will tell when I start refitting.

My dash is still off as I plan on doing a few mods tomorrow so if anyone can think of anything else they would like to know of suggestions please feel free to put them forward.
What does the T piece connect to?

As above the t piece is part of the hose
The air box in the dash has a 20mm blanking grommet in the side of it, you remove the grommet and push the t piece part of the hose into the hole

Can be done to any vehicle that has a single passenger seat
Will fit to any vehicle but if you have a double passenger seat the inside passenger will have no leg space (as in literally none)
