To all who responded to my original post, "Thanks".
This is a picture of the small hose entering the air box. I glued as well as I could and placed a small wire to support it. The break is in the area held by the wire. This is shown in the second pic. The tip of the arrow points exactly to where I glued the broken piece. Hope this is clear enough. Any advise will be welcomed.
Now that I see the picture, the broken part is not the air cleaner box per se but the plastic angle connector that receives the return line from the engine.

Sorry I did not express myself well> The dealer said that there is nothing wrong with the design/manufacturing of the piece. They could see it was broken but did not want to cover it under warranty.
The attachments are in the body on my post above. # 37982 and 37983. If you click on them the picture opens...

Stop spinning your wheels with the dealer
Your time is better spent searching on Ebay for a 1.4 500X wreck (and message them and if they will sell you the airbox) OR search on Ebay for the actual part - used.
When searching wrecks, to ensure they have a 1.4 (as opposed to the 2.4) utilize the link below.
REPLACE the 17 Digit VIN Number on the link with the 17 Digit VIN Number off the wreck you're investigating, then hit "enter" .
Hopefully the window sticker of the wreck you're looking at will pop up.
You can experiment by entering your X's VIN Number in the end of the URL "link"
Engine & Transmission info is listed on the Top/Left of the window sticker.
