    I want to clear all of the crap between the seat runner and the transmission tunnel and I can't reach it with my current one. The one I use is a rather aged Halfords one and the nozzle is just not long enough to reach it all although the suction is ample. :rolleyes:

    Any ideas as to the best one to use without needing a overdraft ? :)

    I use a Dyson Cordless Animal - seems to get to where I need it. Also handy for getting out leaves from the Engine bay recesses... :)

    Temporarily tape a piece of silicon tube to the end of your nozzle.

    That's what I do.
    I have cable gland shrouds left over from my contracting days,
    I push one onto the vacuum nozzle, then cut the end to the aperture I want.

    If you pm you're address I can post you one.

    I have a garage Henry with all the attachments and that seems to cover all the awkward places. I seem to have two of most things having retired and bought all my kit home from work.

    I've always used compressed air to blow all the crap out of the recesses before vacuuming.

    I use the household Numatic "Charlie" (wet version of the Henry ) , they are very good tough vacuums for all diy/car use without breaking the bank
