Broke air cleaner base retainer clip during ABS...

Post by xHeart » Sat Jan 21, 2012 4:19 pm

Tight spaces.

Wiggled a bit harder to pull the air cleaner base out, i guess. When putting the air cleaner base back, noticed the retaining male pin, closer to the ABS module, was broken, partly peeled-off. Forcing the box back to snap-on further deteriorated the retaining pin. Now the pin is attached to the air cleaner base, but not attached to the seat, its base. The plastic piece has broken-off.

Is there a replacement part - or a simple fix?

The air cleaning unit is intact though. However, it rocks/yaws a bit between the battery and the brake fluid reservoir. It appears, the engine vibration is making the air cleaner's hose to front grill come loose, and the positive (+) battery post cover often comes off in rubbing against another hose. I check it after each ride, and wiggle it back to normal.

I can't be asking my wife for the hot glue-gun for this repair. :D

Thanks!

I guess you can go to the junk yard and get one.

One of my cars has had this broken for years, without any problem. If your worried just put an elastic cord or something to hold it in tight, but I don't think its going anywhere. I'm sure the new base would cost a fortune from volvo.

The junkyard visit was disappointing. However, I found the part number, see item #8 in the above diagram. I will order item 8 and rubber cushion #11 this weekend.

What to watch for when I do this part replacement?

Thanks for your help, All!

preparing to replace broken bracket.

Today is Sat 2/11. I now have the replacement bracket and rubber cushions. The air box cleaner base is removed. With the help of WD40, I have successfully unscrewed the two 1/2" bolts holding the bracket in place.

Is it safe to disconnect and connect the tube back again? what is its purpose?

I am not sure now how to proceed with the hose. It goes through the bracket like thread through a needle. Therefore, I ask, could I disconnect and reconnect the hose at the conduit (circled in red)? Should i expect fluid come out? Please help!

Thanks so much.

I believe it's just some kind of air/vacuum line. I have watched a guy disconnect that thing about 5 times working on his PNP switch.

The hose to the right of the conduit flexes, but to the left it is firm-fix. I am preparing to pull it off after a quick prayer.
It is 7:00 p.m. job is done. Also replaced the two worn rubber cushions. Air box now sits the way it should, firm.
Trans D&F is next.

Thank you R!

Oops!
Wait... the fuel guage needle is not where it should three days after the fix.
