Hi guys, what is this located between the dipstick and the air filter box on my 1.6 Golf 5?
A pipe runs to/from filter and another to the throttle side.
I had three different answers.... and each one was totally sure... 😂
Any help out there is appreciated.

This part? Looks like an air pump or blower of some kind. It runs on an electric motor (as opposed to belt driven) when is it running? Is it connected to the intake or the cabin? (It looks like a vacuum pump. Just a guess)
