the battery snorkel that is :P

after i broke it off the box and mask taped it back it keeps coming loose and making contact with the p/s. im fed up and pulled it off for good. question is, is it safe to do this and will the battery explode? :shock:
EB-ED owners, have you ditched or retained the battery snorkel?

Ran without mine in the EA for about 3years with no probs, only put it back on coz i finely stopped f**k around with s**t! And it makes under the hood look complete.
