    TBH i dont know for sure what that is...but the metal clip fitted seems to me to have failed to keep a proper grip,if i was you i would clean as much of the mucky stuff off as you can then snip the old metal clip off and replace with a hose clamp (can get tham from any motor factors or halfords etc) Go easy tightening it up though because if the pipe it slides onto is plastic you could crack it with to much over-tightening.....do this and keep an eye on it to make sure the pipe doesnt pop off again. HTH
