    Snapped connecting pipe - what's if for?

    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1378566098.152622.jpg

    ^ as title really, this snapped when I was tidying the hoses up on my TIP, I've managed to push the silicone hose inside the hose on the TIP and the car runs... Should I be worried?

    Thanks!

    its part of the EVAP pipe that goes into the TIP... if left disconnected it typically throws an N80 incorrect flow fault code..

    Yeah it's sort of sealed... Is it best to block it off you think on the tip until I can source a new pipe? Luckily the part no. Is on there .
