The MUD snow cowl is the MUD version on the traditional ‘Snow Cowl’ or all-weather heater intake fitted to military specification Defenders.
The MUD snow cowl will prevent snow, mud and leaves from entering the heater intake and reducing the Defender heater performance. The heater intake system is fitted with a water trap whose one-way valve is designed to allow water that enters the intake to escape. In reality this one-way valve collects debris and eventually blocks with sludge. Fitting the all-weather cowl prevents moisture build-up within the intake system.
The contours of the moulding perfectly follow the profile of the wing and fits directly over the existing grille. The fitting kit contains replacement stainless-steel screws and black plastic screw covers. The screws are longer than the standard items to guarantee compatibility with chequer-plate equipped vehicles.
Unlike the metal military spec’ item the MUD Snow Cowl is manufactured from ABS plastic. A rigid construction means damage is more likely to occur to the wing if the cowl is snagged when driving off-road. ABS isthe same material used in car bumpers.
This is available in LHD and RHD

*The MUD Snow Cowl is designed to fit over the heater intake vent and is therefore sold as a single unit/cowl.
