Cooling to the alternator. DON'T take it off. Probably have to go to the dealer for a new one. Mine needs replacing too. But so far it still flows air.

As Kev said, do NOT take it off. And if there is a hole in it you are going to want to take that thing to a dealer ASAP.

As long as it's still enough of the hose to flow air you're fine. The alternator gets very hot without that one there and will likely shorten it's life. I'm sure you could afo-engineer one if you needed too. Some 2 inch landscaping drainage pipe and some duct tape ought to do the trick.

You should be able to go to a local junk yard and get this part. It is also really easy to put on.

Don't take it to the dealer, they'll charge you $60+

Need a new sig...
