    Speedtek lids don't latch well either... have to push them back really hard and tuck the lid behind the front lip of the box...

    most all lids are a bear to get latched until you get them figured out. Make sure the lid is seated all the way into the bellows and the tabs are into the slots.

    Push it hard all the way back into the tabs, and make sure the lower lip of the lid (between the clamps) is inside the upper lip of the air box. Installuniversity.com has a whisper lid install article.

    On my SLP lid I had to cut about a 1/2 in off the back of the bellows for it to close right.

    need us to tell you which way those wheels go on????

    glad you got it fixed and you're not the only one to have problems with the lid. I think most people probably do their first time.
