Default Plastic Air box intake or whatever it's called is cracking at the elbow of the fittin

Has anyone tried to repair this? It appears fitting may come out. But I have not seen one for sale so I haven't tried to remove it. Any suggestions?

I have used Silicon Self Fusing Tape on a few places on my Saturn and love the stuff. I keep it in my toolbox because it handles up to 500 degrees. This might be helpful to reinforce that 90 degree elbow, if that is the problem, and it will give you time to purchase a new one for down the road, if needed.

I found this solution on the forum although it was used for a 2008 Vue 2.4L.

http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=199533

particularly read posts #9, #12, #13, #14 and #15 for discussion and an image(s) that might solve your problem.
