Air Filter Box replacement

Posted 07-07-2011 at 21:04 by cmelb

Hi folks,
I am searching for a replacement air filter box for my Marea sx 100 1.6L 2000yr.
There is a hole in it of about 3cm diam. , the plastic is not in great condition.
I am finding it very hard to locate one, and I also live in France which is not helping matters.
I have been thinking about putting in an Induction kit, but all I can find online is the K& M 57i, and from what I have read they are not the best for your engine.
So any help would be great,
Cheers

    Hi, it's not the sound of the K M filter i'm looking for, i'm trying to repair this problem.
    Drilling holes may not go down so well when I go for my car test, as I live in France and i'm not sure if that would be acceptable.
    What other cone filter kit solutions are out there?

    Just realised today that the hole is after the filter, so I really need to get this sorted

    I would personally use duct tape for now to seal it up or used some araldyte and get some plastic stuck on, or rip it all out and put a cone filter onit, i will have a look through my parts bin and see if i have one in there for you.

    Thanks man, ya I was thinking of doing a patch-up job for the moment, but it will need replacing, all the the mounting brackets are broken and as you can see from the pics it's all cracked . Whats's your opinion on K&M filters?!! Also is there a strong enough vacum to suck the duct tape into the engine if it came unstuck? thanks again man.

    Well I patched it up today with some duct tape, so that should hold together for a little while until I find a permenant fix.
