    Having just been to Audi to collect my new MAF, I notice something I've never spotted before.

    The circled pipe looks unusual; I'm sure it had a black screw cover on?! What is this pipe? Am I OKAY to run the car for now without the 'so called' cover?

    (it is located at the rear of the bay as you can see, on the right hand side, behind the TIP (intake pipe))

    Any help much appreciated..

    Thank you.

    Aircon refill or bleed pipe. Should have a plastic cap on it. You can see mine in the pic below.

    5p from Audi - that'll be the day. They'll probably suggest an engine rebuild.

    "sorry sir, only comes as part of the pipe, which is connected to the aircon unit, which is connected to your car, which is connected to your wifes behind, who part owns your house........ Ahh, you might as well give me the whole lot, and bend over while you're at it".

    Or words to that effect :)

    you could go to a local scrap yard and get one from there. doesnt have to be an audi, just annother non jap car with a/c as the valves are the same.
