Hello, I'm looking for some help with an issue. When I was changing air filter on my Alfa Romeo 156 I noticed that a long, black rubber tube was completely broken. My car is Alfa Romeo 156 with 2.0 Twin Spark engine, year 1999.
I'll attach some pictures now:
In this picture there is a red circle around the cracked part. There is a yellow square which is drawn around the tube. The picture is taken while the part is still attached to the engine, to make it easier to recognize which part it is.
In this picture I've drawn three squares.
Yellow square: The part which is broken.
Blue and purple squares: These parts seem to be in good/okay condition, there's slight wear on them and I want to replace them too, so they won't break down later. The material seems to be same as in the tube that is broken, so my guess is that those parts will break down sooner or later too.
So my problem is that I have no idea where I can get new parts. I don't even know what these are called! I hope someone who reads this knows where I can get new parts.
I'd also like to know if there's some other specific things to do while replacing those. Should I use some sealant? There was some greasy stuff on the part which I have rounded with the yellow square.
Thanks in advance! Looking forward to your replies.
