97 Jetta - What part is this?


I have a 97 VWJetta. There is a location just to the right of the passenger side front wheel that has a hose connection of some kind. The hose was just setting in side of this "part" not even mounted. Literally just sitting in its place. Can someone please tell me what this hose is plugging in to? Could it be the power steering pump?
Please see my photobucket for pictures. I have labeled the whell/oilpan to give you an idea of where its located on the car. I have CIRCLED the part that is in question.

Probably the air pump for the emissions. Sometimes called the A.I.R pump. Google it and see if it what you are looking at.

I'm not saying it is or isn't but it doesn't look like it. This hose has somewhat of a clear/grayish oily liquid in it. That's what I also thought led to it being the power steering pump hose. I could be wrong though.

In picture 3 it looks like there's a metal line, either rusted or been hot, going to it.
If it goes to the exhaust somewhere, that's a smog pump (emissions, as already mentioned).
Gas mileage robbing piece of worthless junk.
It would fail inspection in Cali.
(if that's what it is).

It is the power steering pump.

Goto www.advanceautoParts.com and put in a 97 jetta and look at the power steering pump.
