Air Box and Backplate for S2

PostPost by: lotusbaz » Thu Nov 17, 2011 5:25 pm

Hello Again,

I am in need of some further advice for my S2. My car is fitted with Webber carbs but does not have an airbox, cover trunking etc. There is an backplate and cover on ebay at present and the item numbers are 110775518614 and 110775521169.

Can anyone tell me if they are suitable for my S2? i have looked at Paul Matty website and he lists one type for the S1,2 and 3 and another for the S4 and sprint hence my confusion. I have also seen a cover with only one fixing hole whereas this cover appears to have 3 fixings.

Any advice would be appreciated as i would hate to bid in the auction only to find that they were not suitable.

Best Regards from sunny Tyneside, UK

Baz

For reference, in addition to Garys' link, this one sold recently on ebay:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/120798712970? ... 1423.l2649

But when you say "suitable"...RU looking for the type originally fitted? or one that will fit?

Do you have the S2 Parts List & Manual?

Again, for reference, from manual:

Hi Richard,

Many thanks for the attached parts drawing and ebay listing, how i missed that one i will never know. I have a manual but no parts book.

I would like to find the type of airbox and filter that was originally fitted and it looks as though the one on ebay is not the correct shape, it is square rather than round edges. At least you parts drawing gives me a good idea of what to look for.

Best Regards, Baz
