Default Intake silicone falling into fender

I have a ganzflow and the silicone tubing that goes between the intake and the fender metal won't stay on there but for more than 2 weeks on these rough roads.

What is the best type of sealant I can put on that will hold it there but will still allow me to remove it later without much damage if I need to?

You mean that little piece of rubber used so you dont have a rattling sound? I used zip ties to hold mine on...

Yeah that piece of rubber/silicone

What did you wrap the zip tie around. I don't remember any extra holes around there.

Get some clear silicone caulk and put it in the inside portion of the tubing and then put it on the opening. Leave it dry and you should be good. Other option is to use some goop instead of silicone. Both will work.

Too late for me :/ The silicone tubing fell off the fender hole as I was putting it on and vanished into that bottomless black hole that is the fender well. This was like 6 mo. ago

Is there any way I can get to it?

Just tug open your fender lining. Mine fell in too. I just pulled it free (attatched by snaps I think) and fished it out. No probs

Yeah It isn't hard to retrieve. Mine fell in there too until I drilled a couple of small holes and zip tied it in place. You will just need to pull some of the black plastic away in front of the wheel well and fish around inside with your hand and grab it (if it's still in there after 6 months!)....
