It really shouldn't need a t-bolt- it's not under pressure or anything.

If the housing isn't cracked or anything so that it's not compressing than just scuff it up a bit so the filter has something to bite on.

I'm not aware of anybody else having a similar issue, so my first thought is to look for what changed with this one...

its a salt factory all over the streets of montreal this time of year lol, thats why i worry when it falls off :/ Scuffing the maf housing seems like a good idea since both surfaces are smoothe

I put back my resonator in the wheel well to reduce the salt/slush splatter that happens in the winter months. Works like a charm and keeps the engine bay clean. I do have one of those protective nylon socks on the filter to prevent water from getting onto the air filter.

Update: ive used an exacto knife to cut horizontal grouves where the clamp tightens the filter, so il see how that holds up
