Default "Auxiliary" "resonator" in engine bay

I was checking out the air intake on my '04 Forenza to diagnose some issues, when I found that the tabs around the bottom that connect via the rubber gasket to the throttle body were mostly broken. When I google the part number, I get this, but I cant seem to find any source in, like, North America. I suspect the independent mechanic I took it to last was the culprit. But taking it to the dealer here is a complete waste of time and money.

hi. the part might not be sold separate. im not exactly sure what part your looking for but you could try suzukicarparts.com they can get, i think, every part for the reno/forenza. the connection pieces for the intake have been a problem for some people

It's a huge problem, if the intake isn't sealed to the throttle body, all kinds of gunk can get into the cylinders. Which is why it seems I should be able to buy a replacement part from somewhere closer than the UK.

I'm sure you can. Either from the site I posted or from a dealer if it's a dealer only item.

It must be a dealer only part, since that site doesn't find it by either name or part number. Which I suspect means I'll get treated to a 300% markup.

I don't understand why it's so hard to find parts for a crappy mass market car. I have an obscure Porsche that isn't even made anymore that's easier to get parts for. And cheaper!

Does the unit house any sensors like inlet air temp or?

IF not, and the function of the resonator is simply to reduce inlet noise, maybe you could "blank off" this broken area OR eliminate the resonator in it's entirety with an appropriately sized hose section?

It's hard for us to picture what exactly what is broken though, without more detail.

That or pick up a used junk yard resonator.

There's a temp sensor in the hose leading from the air cleaner box to it, and another breather hose connecting to the valve cover.

The part that's broken is a series of tabs that slip inside a rubber gasket that then connects to the throttle body, so the resonator is not sealed all the way around the top of the throttle body.

I don't want to do anything like some of the PVC "cold air intake" hack jobs I've seen on this site. I'm trying to keep the car stock in case I have to sell it. I don't want it looking like I was trying to rice it out or some bullshit.

So piece #13 isn't what you are needing?

Is it pictured at all in the diagram that I provided?

How about #9? Although a "resonator" by title for an '04 Forenza, it looks nothing like the item that you linked.

[ 9 ] ENGINE / ENGINE / TRANSAXLE / AIR INTAKE / Resonator
resonator 2003-07

$46.85
