Hello, I finally got my new ram air solenoid from eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/270850229297?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649 I pulled off the air induction hood scoop last night and found what was wrong, last time the car was repainted (before I took ownership) the paint had sealed both flapper doors! I used a razor blade to break the paint seal and now it should work - even better with a new $50 solenoid installed. I cleaned up everything, installed new 1/2" weather-stripping and I am about to mount it back to the hood with a little modification. I got a red LED strip that I intend to attach to the inside top of the hood scoop. QUESTION: Since the ram air solenoid attaches directly to the underside plastic hood scoop, where exactly does it get it's ground from? There is only 1 wire (that was disconnected when I got the car) and that is the switched +12V line. Does the solenoid get it's ground connection through the linkage to the metal flaps? Seems a bit shoddy, I need a way to get a good ground connection. Many thanks!
