Air Filter Damage.

5 posts in this topic

Eyup. Went tocheck car over, had to clean oil out from down HT lead as it had come out of a seal and gathered in the tube, once cleared out it never came back and intermittent tick over issue cleared.

When I  checked the Pipercross air filter out it had quite a bit of oil in it and a jagged half circle cut/ripped through, roughly in line with the air pipe. Never seen this before, any ideas how that can happen? Deck not damaged when it went in, nobody else touches the car, there's nowt in the airbox to catch it on either.

Might sound silly but could it have been a mouse ? I did some work on a Hyundai jeep thing and a rodent had made a home in the box and had eaten through the panel filter

No, good idea though but the metal grill was still intact, foam in the other side.
