    Default Airbox Query

    Evening all
    Just after some help, i cleaned my k&n panel filter yesterday and dropped the hex key. Took out airbox to retieve it and noticed that there was a hose/pipe below it not connected to anything.
    Looks like it belongs in the bottom of the airbox.
    Anyone know what it's for and if theres any damage done not having it connected??
    Noticed the car pulls better and smoother now (but this could be due to cleaning the filter)
    Cheers

    Not at mo - was a nightmare to get in though. Stood at front of car looking down into airbox, it would be bottom right corner.

    Breather pipe sounds good - its on the dirty air side of the filter. the pipe seems to join in with a thicker one down the front of bay behind rad.
