Air Intake Vibration

Postby plantranger1162 on Wed Jan 12, 2022 4:38 pm

Hey guys,

My 07 ML air intake is vibrating / rattling when idling, it seems to be the part that runs into the air box, has anyone else had this issue and how can it be fixed?

I have nipped up the bolts holding the air box down but has not helped.

Foam padding inbetween the pipe and radiator cowling can help. I have seen people use nuts and bolts to hold them together too. Dont do anything that is permanent though in case you ever need to remove it

A common problem. Think of a way to secure the air intake to the air filter box NOT car body. I tried glue and bolting to the car body but it will still rattle as the car vibrate. In the end I glue the intake to the air filter box.
