Can someone help me figure out what this is and give me an idea on repair/replacement costs? I attached pictures because I don't know how to explain what I am looking at. The hose is located near the base of my air intake. Somehow the hose snapped off. I am certain this happened when I last took it to my mechanic. When I confronted him about the hose, he pretty much blamed me which is BS cause I would have known... anyways - that's a whole other deck of cards...
From what I can tell, the piece is plastic but I can't see how far it goes down or what else it is connected to because the motor is in the way. I've circled the problem in RED. Let me know if I can provide any other clarification and I will do my best. Pics below and thanks ahead of time.
