Has anyone else had problems with their S&B Particle separator Mine was pulling in a lot of dust and dirt So I decided to take it apart and give it a thorough cleaning Started to wonder where all the dirt was coming from so I hooked up a shop vac to blow back into the exhaust and check for leaks. The entire outside cover is leaking.Doesn't seem to fit too well at the ends at all So that means it's pulling in dirt. Has anyone else had this problem and was there a fix for I contacted customer support at S&B I am waiting for a reply

They warrantied the scoop on mine because there was an issue with some “shrinking”. It still doesn’t seal well. I put a bead of silicone on it and it seems to be good. I won’t buy another one.

Silicone would work if I have to. Waiting for customer service to get back to me and see if maybe they have a fix. Also seems like the discharge piece has shrunk a little is that possible?

There's another post on this very issue. I believe it's the one @185EZ mentioned above. S&B will take care of it if it's the same issue. Good luck!

I've been talking to customer service they suggested a new Plenum seal, but I went to look at mine and it seems to be intact. What I did find is the Plenum is warped and curved up on both ends

As memory serves, S&B sent another poster a replacement for that very issue.

I noticed that same issue when I had to replace the motor. Some silicone seems to me to be the best remedy as the placement and lack of the screws appears to be inadequate. I did not think a new housing would make the difference needed.

Update I want to go riding.Temporary fix until S&B can figure out a fix for this. Sealed the Plenum with clear silicone I'll let it dry for 24 hours put it back on a machine and see what happens
Ya know….the S&B is just a pre filtering system right??
You could actually remove it and still ride…..many cars operate every day without it.

Just sayin’

Which Particle Separator is this you’re having issues with? The Wheel Well or the Roll Bar (referred to on S&B website as Particle Separator 2) model?
