I presume you are talking about the air hoses which give more air at cold start time. You might have to get replacement hoses in silicone and stretch them on. Or get in touch with Mr Baker about their wrongly sized replacement.

I'm not totally sure what you're asking, to be honest. I probably know the answer though, as I've been there and done all this on the 16v!

I have a silicone hose between AFM and Throttle Body, from Baker's. The BX 16v AFM hose came about by accident, Baker's sent the wrong hose to the supplier, but fortunately kept the mould and made some up for us.

For this reason the hoses for the ICSV where never made in silicone.

They are different sizes at each end, so be careful if you try to buy stock hose.
