I think you will find that that pipe goes to the side of the air box next to the ambiant air pressure/temp sensor plug.

The Vac controler on the inner wing is for the EGR system.

had a quick look at lunchtime. the only place i can see this pipe could go to is a collar on the bottom of the heater box (haynes terminology). is this corect. Then had a look at the workshop manual and it described it as in the image below

1. EGR solenoid

2. Vacuum hose

15. To Atmosphere

16. In line filter

17. Vent hose - EGR Solenoid to in-line filter

so im now thinking it is 15, a pipe thst should just be left hanging. if this is not the case and it should be connected to the heater box as above, what damage if any would have been caused if it wasnt (it has been hanging since i got it approx 5 weeks)

cheers guys
