Honda Lawn Mower Air Filter Cleaner Cover Falling Off!
I am posting this to help others with the same problem. The air filter cover on my Honda lawn mower kept falling off. The two tabs on the top of the plastic cover were intact - they weren't broken - but the plastic is so flexible that with the vibration of the mower, the tabs kept slipping under their holders and the cover would fall off. One pass across the yard and dang! - the cover was on the ground again! Argghhh! I'm not that ingenious and I tried lots of different things, including duct tape, but no success.
Finally it dawned on me to try heavy-duty coated wire and it has been a 100% success! And it was so easy! I have been mowing my yard all summer with it this way and I have not a moment's problem with this any more. Thought I might help someone else. I just wrapped the wire around and under the tabs. It is easy to remove the wire when the air filter (air cleaner, element) needs changing.
Uh, yeah, the grass stuck to the plastic is from the duct tape residue. :(
