    Hi,
    I'm driving my 84 QV and hear a 'bump' noise as if I'd run over something - but I hadn't. I stop and open the engine compartment and I see the damage to the air intake in the attached pictures. The car continues to run fine.

    Took the car to my local Ferrari mechanic, he seems to think that the mount for the air intake vibrated off and did the damage. I'm not sure that he's worked on many Mondial's though.

    So, I'd really appreciate any help regarding:
    1) what you think could have caused the damage, and is there anything obviously missing in the attached images
    2) where can I get a replacement air intake

    Thanks!

    somebody already modified your air intake....the "glass" makes that quite evident

    you could just reglass or find a used air intake

    Thanks for the feedback. I thought it looked like it had been glassed in. I'll try to find a used replacement. I'm still wondering what did the damage though.

    Rick can you open your air filter and look if a piece of the air intake whas smashed inside...I hope there is an air filter ! Otherwhise a piece could passe the flow metering unit and enter the engine.

    Thanks very much Guido. I'll double to make sure there's nothing in the air filter. The engine seems to have been running fine, so hopefully not. Looking forward to receiving the board.
    Cheers, Rick
