Re: How To - Megane1 2001 1.6 16v air filter replacement

The hose on mine had also fell to pieces, this set up is identical to my 1.4.
Trying to source a replacement was a nightmare due to its ''oval'' profile, i've recently learnt the hose is not available on its own but a complete assembly eg; air box, collector & hose, repairing mine i know why, the hose is stapled to the air box!
I made a satisfactory repair by removing the staples & the hose that was damaged, cutting the top & bottom off a stout plastic bottle & cutting down the middle. it was then wrapped around the air box & taped up, some sealing compound was needed as there are proud ridges on the air box.
