    Question air intake??

    I bought my Astra back in July since then given it some minor TLC which it needed. Now when i bought it the air intake pipe didnt fit properly into the bottom of the airbox. I found out that the air intake pipe is off a vectra as it has the wider mouth. Where it leads to at the bottom of the airbox the previous owner has just bodged it up with duct tape and now it starting to get on my nerves. So when i take it all out this weekend im just wondering on what should be there i.e a rubber connection pipe etc..... if not what to get???? Thanks

    You should have this pipe between the air intake pipe and airbox. Maybe get one from scrappers? Someone on here also bought 2 vectra intake pipes and made them into one, and should have that part spare as only one was required, hopefully they'll come onto this thread.
    Astra Sold! Now its back! Sold Again! Who knows whats going on!
