Post MY99 Intake Silencer Removed. Couple ?'s

OK. So I FINALLY tacked the intake silencer removal this weekend, and I have the cuts on my knuckles to show for it. What a PAIN in the B-U-T-T that was. Of course one of the pins that hold the inner fender liner would NOT come out, and after trying evrything I could do to get it to come out, it eventually busted. I looked in my good old nuts & bolts bin and found an old bike chainring bolt that screwed into the sheetmetal hole perfectly. It's even more solid that the orginal plastic pin. Anyway....getting to that bottom bolt on the silencer is quite a job, and once you have it off, squeezing the box OUT of the fender takes some work. UGH. So anyway...I was wondering if anyone has any suggestion on what to use to cover up that hole left on the fender in front of the intake box? Should I just use some good old Duct tape, or is there some sort of plug I can get? I though I saw some sort of rubber "filler" for that hole on some MY00's & 01's.

Thanks

There is a Subaru factory part that covers the hole, I have it on my car. Perhaps North Ursalia can tell you the part number... if not, I can unplug mine and see if it's printed on it.

The part is $5 and reduces intake noise considerably over the 2 ply cardboard I previously had covering the hole.

I too have the plug, it did quiet down the intake, but will pull in colder air for the intake.

Get the plug. I have the PN at home but if you do a search I think I posted it before.

I got one from subaruparts.com with some other stuff. The part number listed on the invoice was 46059FA000 with the description "plug". I paid 3.88 for it. Can anyone confirm if that is the p/n?
