    This is a very common pipe to go. Only thing is you have to buy a whole series of pipes, you can't just get the one you need. It was about £65 if I remember correctly. If I can find my invoice or the rain stops outside I'll let you know the part number.

    **EDIT** - Zooming in on the original pic of the part gave me the part number of 06A-133-782G

    This is what the part looks like:

    I didn't notice an improvement in power after getting the pipe replaced, but my car is running badly at the moment anyway so that's not surprising!

    I paid a garage to fit the pipe at the same time as they did the clutch so not sure how difficult it was. Think it only took them 30 mins or so. You'll need some new jubilee clips as you have to remove some of those "Use only once" metal clips holding the existing pipe in place.

    If you take a good look I think you'll find the pipes are really tricky to change on their own. I think you're best off stumping up the cash; at least then you'll know that all the PCV piping under the manifold has been replaced. The last thing you want is to replace one bit only to find another go at some point down the line.
