Like I said...the dealer doesn't know what this is. I checked three years ago when the tabs on my clips were found broken as I did the TB change. I brought it to the dealer and we searched and searched. It is possible that one comes with a plastic intake pressure line when that part is purchased.

Yeah, I realize bringing it to the dealer is a long shot. I think its going to depend on who is there. I might just get someone who knows something. The parts guys at my nearest dealer (Albuquerque) seem to have a lot of experience. I have to drive down there soon anyway (they have a couple or parts for me) so it can't hurt to ask them.

I have been informed that this part is included with the TB cover (right or left side) when it is purchased.

Sounds like a job for a high temperature adhesive.

Agree, glue the darn things on. I also think that you can probably live without these bracket/clips, since the hard plastic input tubes are pretty well supported at each end. Any vibration could probably be cured with a chunk of fairly firm rubber stuffed between the timing belt cover and the intake tubes.

Some used parts sellers do include the retention clips, and some do not. So be specific when buying a used TB cover just to get a clip.

I do agree that the clip may not be necessary. I've been running without one for a year now. Gluing them on can be a problem because it is then difficult to install the pressurized intake tubes. Screwing them in place via new holes in the clips would be better.

This is just one of those bugs up my @$$ that I want to correct. I guess it also says the allroad has no other problems [at this time )
