air intake hose ?

i taken this off last night as the bracket was snapped, and it was hanging loose, also i noticed where it is positioned it is really taking in no air, because its right against the front metal of the car.

im guessing this is ok to keep off ?
just looking for some reassurance.

cheers.

Re: air intake hose ?

it will not do any harm, you may have a slight drop in performance if the air around the "new intake point" if you like, is warm

this shouldnt be a problem whilst driving but if stopped at lights etc it could cause a slight loss of power

i would advise getting it sorted though as although it may not seem like that, it is put in that place for a reason
