Donít worry, be happy. I always liked that old Bobby McFerran song. If everything downstream of the filter was intact, you should not have a problem. You didnít mention what model of 126 you have, but on the gas engine cars, there is a rubber ring that is located in the bottom of the air filter housing and attaches to the air flow sensor housing. When it becomes old, this often times gets either pushed out of position or can leak a little. You should check it out. I *would* say with certainty that you are in no danger if the car was not running, but once you started it up, it is *possible* that you could have sucked some sand in *if* that seal was bad; not likely though. I wouldnít lose sleep over it, just check it out.
