    Thread: Help identifying a line that I found hanging?

    1. 04-13-2019 07:56 PM #1
      I recently purchased a 2012 GTI, I removed the engine cover today and found a line that's been disconnected from somewhere. I looked for at least a half-hour and didn't see where it might go. How can I post a picture of it so someone might be able to help with identifying it and maybe tell me where it should be connected?

      I saw this on my engine yesterday too. I'm not sure what it does but mine was not connected to anything either. Seems normal.

      Can you take a quick picture of the end of the connector? It almost looks like it's a block heater connector, but it doesn't look like the wiring (if it's even wiring) would be a thick enough gauge to support that much current safely.

      Hope your date lint rolled that left sleeve of his before you two went out for the night too (You left a personal picture in your personal FLIKR library, clicked "next" thinking there was another car picture, there wasn't lol)

      yell into it, maybe you'll hear it inside your car somewhere. lol, NFC what that is. As the previous posted said, are their pins inside it? I was JUST working on my car and didnt notice this.

      did you get intake manifold flappers fixed on your car, new part revision . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5IVxPqriZkk


      audi has it secured to top of valve cover it looks like, odd it just sits there from the looks of it https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/20...93588-0699.pdf

      Thanks for all your help! Just to be sure is this hose actually used or is it useless? The intake was replaced by the previous owner.

      That hose is actually an air intake line for the intake manifold. The larger end that is in your hand in that photo is supposed to be open and mounted between coilpacks 2 and 3 on the valve cover if it's routed correctly. As long as the line is connected to the manifold at the other end and the line isn't pinched, you're probably OK to mount it/secure it where it's not too close to a heat source or moving parts. It's best to mount it where it belongs though if you can.
