156 JTD Veloce

Air Box Lid Query..

Replaced the MAF tonight and bobbed the old air filter in until my induction kit arrives.

Car runs well now with the new MAF, but ive no idea if its improved as ive been driving a yaris for a week.

Been getting only 36mpg from a 2.5 JTD, so im hoping the new MAF Will fix this.

Only query is the air box lid is only held on with one bolt, as one has snapped off and one isnt gripping.

This wont be an issue when the induction kit arrives as it will be bolted onto the MAF and the lid sealed....

Until then tho is it safe to drive with the lid not fully sealed? The gap is only small as ive weighted the lid down with some cables. Induction kit should be here friday so the car will travel 60-70 miles until then....

Advice appreciated
