    Should be an easy one for you guys (I hope).
    Opened the bonnet to be greeted by this.
    Is it just a split breather hose or is this commonly caused by a blockage etc?

    Not many cdi's that don't leak from there, I wouldn't worry to much, if it bothers you change the pipe and sensor,5 min job.

    Thanks. I guess mine used to be one of the few. Do I have to change both the pipe and sensor (which leaks?) or do they come as a single unit.?
