K-series air filter box – how’s it fixed??

Post by Tim S » Mon Aug 06, 2018 9:16 am

Hi all

I’ve traced a nasty engine-bay rattle on my S2 111S to the air filter box banging against something. It doesn’t seem to be rigidly attached to the car – only to various bits of pipework. I assume it should be attached more firmly, but can’t see how. Let me know if you know!

Thanks

Tim

Thanks Campbell. That is what most of the rest of the car is made of by now!

Cheers

Plus duct tape. Always a winner.
