    Exclamation Urgent alert for jeepers that bought a jeep that had a snorkel installed by the previous owner.

    This is for everyone that had bought a jeep where the previous owner had installed a snorkel, more specifically, the ARB Safari Snorkel since I am unsure how other snorkels are installed.

    Open up the airbox and lift up the filter. If you see little holes in the bottom of the air box that are not sealed, THEY DID NOT DO THE INSTALL PROPERLY!. Be sure to seal those holes. If you do not seal these holes, you run the risk of having water sucked into the air box, which goes against everything that the snorkel was supposed to do when installed.

    If you found that they did not seal those holes, then it makes you wonder what else they did not do properly. At the least, check to make sure that the fittings for the snorkel appear to have some sort of RTV looking material applied. It may not even hurt to go through and just seal up the edges again with some RTV even if you do see that they used RTV just to be safe.

    Myself and Bernie (JeepMadMan) have now seen our second jeep within a few weeks where the snorkel wa installed by a previous owner and the holes were not sealed.

    Just did a little sneak and peak on an airbox of a jeep that was purchased with a snorkel already installed and saw the same problem that caused some issues on the last ride, the air box was not sealed at the bottom.
