air filter housing

can any one tell me how much a new air filter housing box is as the fixing bolts are sheered off, or is there an alternative to replacing the housing??

This is how i did mine.....
remove filter box from car, carefully/slowly so as not to melt the plastic, grind the head off the bolt/screw down to the plastic lugs on the lid, remove the lid, grind the protruding bolt to heat it up so you can pull the seized bolt/fitting from the main air box, get 3 M6 nuts/bolts and cut the head off the bolts, set the bolts in the holes in the main box using liquid metal or similar (i used car body filler) and job done, just make sure you copper slip the fitting up when refitting
