A clip at the back of my intake manifold has broken. VW want £96 for the whole pipe.

This is the small pipe going past the throttle body:



and this is the clip:



The clip itself is a white circular thing, about 1cm in height.

I would be most grateful if anyone had a spare or could help me locate one.

Kind Regards,
Toffs

Yep, it's white, circular, and not worth £96

Maybe - anyone who's removed their stock manifold might have one. I'm not sure what this feed is for - SAI, a sensor ?

Hmm i havent got one but perhaps use a piece of 3mm silicone hose. Chop off tge broken white clip. Push the thin plastic hose inside silicone etc??

Yeah, last resort it could work.

Mate the £96 is for the whole vacuum pipes and connectors to both solenoids and fpr on front of engine.

For that white clip you just need some 3mm silicone tubing. Slide over the hard pipe end, then attach to manifold. Job done.
