As I mention before, the brace is there to support the lower part of the Plenum, without it it has a tendency to separate at the seam, as it is made of two halves. The two upper bolts only support the upper half, so there is a reason for that pain in the arse lower support. And yes, I have personally come across plenums separating/cracking.

Bazz,
I'm willing to accept that not connecting the brace will at least increase the chances of the plenum cracking or some way coming apart, and that it could happen (despite appearing unlikely). I was tempted not to, but as I said wasn't confident that it might not cause a plenum issue, so I did connect it...

I noticed the plenum seam, and the multitude of little springy clips that appear to hold the two halves together. I suspect that if one were actually wanting to separate them, that it would be next to impossible...

As for fitting the bolts, I just do it from underneath with very long extensions, just needs a steady hand.

Well, my trolley jack wasn't cooperating, and while it would have been possible to use a scissor jack to get the height needed it is a PITA so I perservered from above. Good news for today is that the jack is back online...

Regards,
John.
