Right drove the car home and was a very nice drive, cleaned the pipes out on the way down. However I have had this problem since getting the car. It hunts between 800 and 900 rpm when idle or out of gear.However, it would return to normal idle speed after a few seconds.

I went to a VW dealers that I trust very well and have serviced my MRS vw for 3 years now and told them the problem they told me it could be a vac air leak or breather. However it got me thinking it could be a split hose. So I opened up the bonet and had a good look around and could not see no visible signs of a split hose however upon inspecting the drivers right side I found this.

I

I was not 100% certain what pipe this was leading to but it sits just infront of the front cv joint by the looks of it.

Could this be the problem why or could it be a contributing factor? and will it effect things like fuel consumption and temp of engine ?

Its doing good thanks [:D]

If that bar ends up on the wishbones by a little drop link, which im sure it will as theres no pipes there apart from your brake ones then its nothing to worry about.

Check the pipes under the inlet manifold.....particularly the one in the middle leading to the little valve near the oil filter as that is HIGHLY prone for failing.
