Default Air Filter Box Mount Repair

I found that one of the "posts" that secure the air filter box on my 2001 Touring Edition was snapped off. Fortunately the broken piece was still in the rubber mount. When I looked at it I felt the hole inside the mount was about 6mm. I found a short 6mm coarse bolt and held the broken piece against the box, put the bolt on from the inside of the box, and it threaded in nicely. All went back together well and at least this rattle is fixed. Small victories. I hope this helps someone, antiqueynot

Yep, this a great reminder of a good way to repair this common accurunce. As people come and go here. These little tips get lost in the abyss of old posts.
