Hello everyone, been a bit since I've been on here.
2014 Symba purchased Feb. 2014
So, this last summer when I did my second oil change (1000 miles on the odometer) I noticed that my air filter housing unit was cracked (cleaned air filter) where the hose meets the box on the lower right side and is in danger of falling off. The larger rubber portion that attaches to the CARB is was cracked. Well, because it was under warranty I got a whole new unit. Yay!!
Well, my last time I checked the air filter was at 6,000 miles and lo and behold same problem with the air filter housing unit. Same two hoses cracked, and used electrical tape to hold up the smaller one on the lower right side. Now that it's out of warranty, I have to purchase a new one myself. It has a tendency of dying quite easy at stops because it's not getting sufficient air flow (probably needs a CARB cleaning as well).
Any of you also have a problem with this? Seems like a design flaw to me. http://i1267.photobucket.com/albums/jj544/sklater/IMG_2618_zpsmmlzh4ts.jpg
(You can't see the crack because it's covered with the tape). Actually, more like it's completely torn off.
