Yes it’s a black plastics accordion-type vent tube.

Looks a bit like a vacuum cleaner tube. At SLS they have good pictures to figure out what parts go there.

Perfect
That’s what I need… the heating system looks like it’s been overhauled on my car but this is missing on one side.. I can’t see the other side.. forgetful or negligent.. the search begins….
Thank you

I purchased two of these in August 2019 from Vintage Euro Parts in California. They are still on their website.

Hope this helps

I saw them used from Authentic classic a while ago for $40. You also may be able to substitute them with a regularly tube or hose.
