Air box bolts

I fitted a new thermostat to my 156 today. I thought about changing the air filter and noticed the bolts were rusted. As I tried to undo them they just broke away. Do I either replace the bolts if I manage to get them out, or do I rip it out and fit an induction kit. If so which is the best one to fit. Also does anyone know where I can the clips for the fusebox cover. Mine appear to be missing.

The bolts go into brass inserts in the filter housing. They seize solid. I knocked up a few metal brackets to hold the lid on instead but an induction kit would also work.

There is quite a bit of information on here...

Alfa Romeo forum: Air FIlter Box

I am sure there was a 'technical ; how to guide' somewhere, either on here or on by someone who removed the standard air box & repaired it to solve the very problem you describe. had a quick look just now but could not find it...
