    By the looks of the pic, that would be for the breather system, that vents excess emissions back into your intake. They are known to break cause of the oil that weakens then plastic/rubber.

    I could be completely wrong thou.

    Yes... its part of the PCV system... I suspect this will also be giving you an air leak and allowing unmetered air in... get it fixed :)

    A turbo :laugh:

    In all seriousness though, I don't think anything is missing, I think the hard plastic pipe in the lower section has broken off inside the flexible hose, hence them seperating.

    Replace the plastic bit :)

    Considering that the majority of the cars in the 8L section have turbos thats quite a bold statement :)

    there is no part missing Den, read my post above. the broken end will be inside the hose.

    Part number will be on the main body, so the lower section.

    Potentially as it could be allowing un metered air (as I mentioned before) into the engine so the ecu could be compensating for fuel...

    Never logged a 1.6 before so I don't know how intelligent the ECU's are on those...
