M140i hot climate intake mod

Post by Stevec33 »

I’ve got the bits to do the hot climate intake mod on my m140i, was wondering if anyone has a link to a diy guide? Theres a few bits im unsure on, firstly i cant see how the airbox comes out? No visible fasteners that i can see, then any pointers on the easiest way to do it and exactly what bits to take on an off ect would be very helpful. Aslo ive noticed people mentioned removing the foam and baffle in the bottom of the airbox but can only find limited info on why and what it does? Thanks

A while since I did it, but it wasn’t difficult, just a little fiddly.

From memory, loosen jubilee clip on turbo pipe. Hard tug on air box to release it from the rubber bungs. Pull the snorkel pipe out and remove the old end rubber piece. Remove left hand grille. Remove blanking plate. Feed new rubber elbow through hole and get the lip to seal the hole. Fit grille insert. Insert snorkel back in and push it into other side of new elbow piece. That bit is fiddly. Then fit everything back as it was.

If you got the grill for the front you will also need to remove 1 side of the front kidney grill to give you access to this.
