[Engine] 1.6Hdi - Under bonnet rattle...
A rattle has developed under the lid of our Berlingo. There's a large black rectangular box that sits at the back of the engine - part of the air intake I guess - and the box is loose and rattling about. It was getting dark so couldn't see how this is attached. Can anyone confirm what the box is, and how to secure it please? I've attempted to upload a photo cribbed from an online image which shows the box ringed in black.
All clues appreciated......thanks...

That is the air filter housing, ang it pushes into two grommets at the bottom, and hooks onto two rubber bushes at the top, shouldnt be that loose.

Mine was exactly the same or probably worse!
The whole air filter housing and associated pipework was loose and rattled very annoyingly.
As already mentioned the housing sits in rubber 'grommets' which (in less than 4yrs) either perish or wear away. Confusedillyme:
My solution...?
The whole lot is in the shed at the bottom of the garden!
It's very quiet now. :thumbsup:

Thanks Lighty and j90xxx. Clearly I'm not alone. Quite a bit of the associated plumbing is flopping around too. I'll have to try to fix it in place again for now, but yours is a neat arrangement j90xxx - any more details please?
If it's not freezing or chucking it down I'll have to take a closer look in daylight.

I did a thread titled 'Induction Kit' in July last year.
The only difficult bit is fabricating an adapter plate. :thumbsup:
