1.2/1.4 8v airbox

My 2010 1.4 8v Evo has recently developed what sounded like the engine was knocking which had me concerned till I have investigated it today. It turns out the anti vibration washer thing where the bolts hold it on has deteriorated shown circled in the screen capture from a youtube below. if you hold the airbox with the engine running the knocking goes away.

does anybody know if it is possible to get one of these my local dealer says I can't get a replacement and need a whole new airbox and a look at eper and google have been no help to me so far. if not any suggestions on what I could use instead to dampen it?

I don't see the point in replacing the airbox when it is perfectly fine apart from this small problem and the cost of a replacement one on eBay.

i was thinking of getting a pack of Rubber washers but not sure if they'd be suited to the high temperature sitting on the engine?
