    Hi guys, right need your helping hands yet again. Had a big service done at midland VW the other day which was fine but ended up with a "to do" list bigger then before the service. One of the things I want to get sorted first is a breather hose that's broken/ leaking. Can you guys tell me which hose this is exactly. Cheers. Rav.

    Its an air leak so yeah... will affect performance to a degree... easy enough to fit but expensive for what it is

    Tutfty are we talking about the same pipe? This one doesn't seem to be connected the hockey puck bit. Here's a close up of the specific pipe. As you can see its properly cracked/ snapped.
