Cheers for the advice .... Done a quik fix for the moment with rubber hose and cable ties ....Hi Hightower – I see you are from the Emerald Isle (did you have a good St. Pats., Day) – I’m from Belfast – the guys on the mainland have it easy when it comes to Vehicle Testing – the system in both parts of Ireland are more stringent than the mainland UK. A good neat repair job using gaffer tape should be OK as the air intake pipe is not a critical safety component and shouldn’t affect the running of the car. Yeh! The Renault stuff is just too expensive but I suggest you try some of the motor factors as similar ducting can be bought in varying lengths and cut to suit. Hope this helps and God Luck.
