What is this for? Polo 6N. Air filter pipe.

Post by craigedmonds »

Today I was changing the air filter and I noticed that the previous mechanic had bodged the outpipe coming from the air filter cover.

However, that pipe goes into a box of some kind. I noticed some carbon build up in that box when I removed the pipe.

Can anyone tell me what that box is for?

Below is the bodged pipe and under that is a picture of the inlet for the pipe which leads to some kind of box in the back of the engine.
