Default Speed6 cobb sri problem

I dont know if u guys had the sAme problem as me but, every couple of weeks when i pop my hood i notice that my dam cone filter spipped off again. Whether i tighten it a lot or just a bit doent help. Just today it slipped off and jammed between my shifter weight so i couldnt shift into 1,3,5,r. How could i fix this?

I'd think there's supposed to be a lip it sits into in the tube, at least mine does. When you tighten the hose clamp it tightens behind it to prevent slip. Is your lip still there?

Is it threaded?

I suppose if your missing that part as Dirk suggests you could put a little thread locker on there for the time being. Assuming its threaded in a manner for which my suggestion applies...

Then go buy that part and replace when u can!

I'm running the same Cobb SRI

Are you still using the original Cobb filter? Not a big deal, lots of folks use different filters, but want a starting point...

Okay, no lip, I must have been remembering something else. Now, the inside of the filter is a little rough, the plastics part. The plastic part it attaches to on the tube has a rough texture, too. When the hose clamp is tightened, friction holds it on.
