I wonder if anyone can give me a bit of advice. I just changed the air box for the filter, as shown in the guide. What I didn't see in there was what we do with the air box.
I've removed the lower half, but I've had to leave the top half in the engine bay because there's some sort of cable connected to it and it doesn't appear to be easily removable, and I don't want to break something!
It looks like this:
It doesn't seem to go anywhere and the only thing I can imagine that it does is check whether there is actually air in the air box, or maybe a temperature sensor, but there seems to be one of those after the baffle.
So, what do I do?!
Thanks in advance,

Picked mine up from Euro and it was the red one with white plastic... only reason I kept mine within the standard air box was so to prevent it getting wet in adverse weather conditions.
Definitely one of the better mods I've performed, only beaten by the 2.0 TFSI Coil pack conversion which made a world of difference to how well the car runs.
You'll definitely know if you've had the valve deleted because the top of your engine will be clear of clutter.
Take your engine cover off... If you have a load of pipe work over the two right hand coils then you still your N249 plumbed in (at least thats how both mine and my Dads car were / are set up).
I'd like to try the catch can mod... but seems like a lot of work in getting various parts off to get proper access (or am I wrong?).
One of them mods that you simply get someone else to do who's done the job a few times before.
I fitted mine without a heat shield because from what I've researched on our engines it makes naff all difference, I just cable tied the little prong on the end to the loop for the standard air boxI will fit mine soon just want to paint it black as I have the red and white one, was going to wait until I have a b5 tip before I put it on but I am tempted to just put it on now, would you recommend using heatshield as well? Just to hold the maf in place and stop everything moving around.
