    I'm an idiot - Broke Airbox Clip!

    Decided to stick with the stock airbox, went to replace the original GM filter today and didn't remove the snorkel first. Broke the top little clip on the stock airbox cover. Real small gap in there now, doubt it does anything. Just frustrating!

    Am I the only one who has done this?

    Anyone want to sell me their stock airbox cover? I'll buy it!

    Re: I'm an idiot - Broke Airbox Clip!

    Yeah i highly doubt it makes any difference at all. it's maybe another couple of millimeters tops of a gap. it's still completely closed. I just drove it and the new clean filter feels great. I probably am worrying over nothing but i just feel stupid and also frustrated because I noticed a new door ding this morning too! And I park miles away ALL THE TIME!
