Air Intake Hose/Tube


Asked by Starchild1163 Dec 01, 2017 at 03:18 PM about the 2000 Honda Accord LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I'm car illiterate, so bear with me...
Replacing cracked Air Intake
Hose/Tube, to pass inspection.
Looked up part number, by VIN,
and the replacement part number
is 17228-PAA-A00. Ordered it, but
it doesn't look right.
In the attached picture, the top 2
are existing tube/hose.
Bottom includes new part.
Am I missing something?

I think I must be missing something. What is the difference between the two? If it fits, use it.


I have it now! The new one does not have duct tape on it!

Thanks. Guess I'll ask someone else.

Sorry, smartass answer caught me off guard ad pissed me off. The new part has a "hole" that the old one doesn't (see pic below)


You may have received the wrong part packaged under the replacement part number. I did a search on line for the part number you listed and several sites show an illustration of a part that looks like your original part - no port for an external connection. I suggest getting back in touch with the vendor about this.

Another possibility is that this is a universal replacement part and you need a special plug to close off the port on the side of the hose.

Thank you. I will try both options.

Hey there Starchild, I too have the same issue with you ( I have a '97 Accord). What was your final solution to this problem? I almost seemed like the extra port wouldnt fit in the space either.


I took the new part to a mechanic, who gave me a rubber plug that fit snugly enough, then put a clamp around it to secure it. So far, so good. Hope that helps.

The new intake tube is for the ex vtec that has a secondary air box coming off of that connection.

Same thing happened to me but when I looked closer, that port wasn't cutout from inside. Basically it came plugged. Pretty sure it's universal for several different cars.

Also I have 98 ex vtec l4 and mine doesn't have an extra box going to that bottom port. (Just bought the car and want to make sure I'm not missing anything)

I believe its a p trap. It has something to do with sound.
