It appears that ARB in their infinite wisdom attached the snorkel to the airbox with a plastic nut on a plastic stud. Over time the threads on the stud have stripped out, so the snorkel isn't sealing properly where it comes through the fender. Is there some trick to replacing these studs with something a little more substantial? I can't seem to find a way to access them without pulling the snorkel off which I do not want to do. Has anyone else had this problem?

The plastic nut and stud came that way from the factory as I recall from my install of the Mantec. You probably have to remove the snorkel and find a way to use metal hardware, but I don't know how the Safari Snorkel sits against the body. Mantec has a steel plate.

I really don't want to pull the snorkel off. Frank had to destroy the fender on the '00 when he took it off to move over to mine.
