Is it a V6 or 1.8T????

Well, for a 1.8T, the PCV tube that returns vented air back into the intake tract is the black steel tube at the top of this picture:


It dumps into the intake hose that connects the MAF, turbo and DV, as well as the N75 valve (I called it the gengsing root):




Sorry, no V6 pics. HTH.

Actually if it is your breather hose, it's number 2 in the left side diagram. I replaced mine last month because it was cracked and leaking oil which smelled like exhaust in the passenger compartment.



I also replaced some other parts that were leaking oil (2 PCV valves and hoses), you can read all about it and see the pics here: http://www.clubb5.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=71510

I did the work. I think total it was under 50 bucks for all the parts. And a couple of hours of time. Since the hoses are under the intake manifold it was a pain in the A$$. But if you take your time it's easy.
