    Just noticed this poking out from the bottom of the airbox going into the crank case and off somewhere else, can't really see what it is without taking the cover and other bits off, can someone tell me please? Kind of has the same appearance as a thin fuel pump or filter.

    Sorry for the rubbish picture, just got it off of the net as it's cold and dark outside!

    Cheers :)

    Oh really? What the hell is it doing all the way over there lol, they are normally on the intake plenum of most cars I've had.

    They tend to get noisy on other cars I've had too when warm.

    Cheers :)

    Oh and somewhat off topic, just noticed that Star is in reading, you are not too far from me, perhaps 30-40 miles.

    If I can't get this ****** throttle issue sorted I may have to pop down and see you (stopping and starting all the way!).


    Cheers,
