Greetings all! I was wondering could I ask for more assistance. I have been trying to fix up a 1.6l beetle I bought and noticed some gaffer tape around a hose near the oil filler cap. When I unwrapped it; it looked like this
Light Automotive fuel system Automotive tire Automotive design Motor vehicle

Light Automotive fuel system Motor vehicle Automotive tire Automotive design

Would I be right in thinking that it shouldn’t look like that and possibly it has been wrapped with gaffer tape because it’s either broken or leaking?

many thanks in advance!

Very common problem; many members with the New Beetles with the 1.6L have this issue. This houses hot, oily, crankcase gases and recirculates these, into the throttle body. So, it is just a matter of time; that these will fail and the rubber, gets cooked and falls apart.

ETKA: is always a good place; to find exploded views on parts:

The engine code; should be on the timing belt cover sticker or stamped on the head, etc.; from what I am seeing on ETKA, you might have a "AYD or BFS" engine code.

Can you look at your intake hose and see, the VW part # on it? It looks like this intake plastic hose; maybe all included in one piece and needs to be replaced as a assembly?

Looking at ETKA; #8, you click on it in the exploded view and then, it gives you different part #'s, based upon the engine code and size. You can confirm the part #; by looking at your old part # and then, search online for the best pricing.
