I popped the hook recently in my Touareg and I noticed that where the air filter and the pipe that goes to the throttle body is dangling disconnected (picture posted below) is there any way it snaps back on by the looks of it I couldn't see anything that would allow it to snap back into place. What should I do to fix this problem? And has anybody ever experienced this? And last but not least could it be robbing some horse power?

That's the maf connecting to the filter housing. You're going to need to epoxy/ Jb weld it back to the filter box. The stress of not taking off the maf during the filter changes does that.

Mines a hair loose on the drivers side.

Ended up doing mine yesterday. I cleanly broke it free and then put a clean ring of JB in the slot and then put it back into place. I then stuffed a bunch under the backside where horn intake is.

How are those k&n treating you
very well I've had them on for about a year just checked them recently and they were still very clean. When I installed them obliviously I didn't notice any real performance gain except a hint of increased throttle response and better sounding induction noises

I've been looking at AEM dry flows
