Please help identify car part

Found 24th Feb
I have a split pipe coming from my car engine, but I need help identifying what it's called so I can look for a replacement. It's the part outlined in red.

Can anyone please help?

Breather pipe , bet it's a corsa ?


Or a Astra.
Sorry, forgot to mention. It's a Vauxhall tigra
Crankcase breather pipe
Thanks for all your quick replies. One more question, as I'm not mechanically minded. What actually goes through this pipe or is it just air. Also with it being a tigra and parts hard to find, am I right in thinking that certain Corsas have the same engine?

Corsa's Astra's and Tigra's and other Vauxhall's share these engines. Try Googling Autovaux as they specialise in new Vauxhall spares.
OK thanks, I will have a look now

air/gas

it isnt connected to anything the other end, it just kicks it out kind of like an exhaust
Thanks for that info. Just needed to make sure there wasn't any fluids going through it

Just air from the engine
Car will smell a bit of oil if driven for a while
Done 2 of these breathers in corsas already this year , easy fix and under a tenner from a motor factors
Thanks again. Trying to find one locally that doesn't want to charge me £15+
Just put some hose repair tape on that you can pick up from a parts shop. Only crankcase gases and a bit of residule oil so not under any pressure.
Try and join a tigra owners group on Facebook. I'm in an Astra group and the help is amazing and saved me a ton of money.
Engine breather pipes, dead common fault, rubber pipe must cost Vauxhall/Opel pennies, for just how c##p the quality is..
I bet someone will do a silicone upgrade part(will last life of car, and beyond!!)
Not dangerous, per se, but you will get fumes into cabin, potential for some oil mist to run down a hot engine...
Just change them, no special tools, will take no time at all..
