My wife noticed a small clear plastic thing in the engine bay that was connected to a hose at the lower end but nothing at the other.

I've looked through a few images and found out it's and Egr vacuum air filter thingie?

It's obviuosly there for a good reason, will it cause any problems being removed or do I need to get it sorted Asap, I can see where it attaches to, but can't attach it as the end doesn't appear. fit properly.

Hello!

pends where you are on the engine.....

there is a small clear(ish) plastic filter on the rear of the engine easily seen from the drivers side which is attached at one end but not at the other.

its a breather filter only so there is no other hose that has dropped off.

Thanks Rustymark.

It's the correct one your speaking about.

I checked it against another freelander which the owner was kind enough to show me. The small filter is a breather which should be open to the atmosphere at one end, I had attached it to another breather which should have been the same which is a small black metal gooseneck pipe just above where the filter should be fixed.

I noticed a bit of grey smoke after a couple of days with these two bits joined together. oops!

When I seen the error I had made I changed it back and all was well again.
