      That is supposed to see atmospheric pressure. It routes to the back of the box to reduce the chance of something getting into the regulator and poking a hole in the diaphragm. You could rip the hose...

      You can drill a hole in the valve cover, or what some people do is get an oil cap off one of the models of the New Beetle (gen1). It provides the vent that's otherwise missing from the valve cover.
