Sheared off air filter bolts
On my V6, two of the bolts that hold the air pipe onto the bell housing thing that contains the air filter have sheared off due to rust and incompetent mechanics trying to remove them and not telling me (Caledonia Warrington) Mangoletsi picked it up at the last service and said they really need drilling and tapping and new bolts fitting.
Is this common? Has anyone else had this done? What will happen if I leave things as they are? The air pipe that contains the MAF is sort of loose, so I guess unfiltered air can get into the engine, but what about performance if the joint is not air tight?
Any suggestions chaps?
