    Trouble Fitting Airbox

    Evening all,

    When i got my car it already had a PiperX cone filter on it. I was noticing flat spots with this so got myself an eBay bargain, A De restricted air box with courtney panel filter. Now when i come to fit this today im having trouble securing it in the engine bay.

    I noticed it has two mounting lugs one on the top end and one on the bottom. Now the bottom (nearest the bumper) isnt a problem as there is the bracket with the rubber grommet there to take the lug but there is no bracket at the top end.

    I no that dosnt sound very clear but does any one no what i can do?
