Default Can someone please identify this part

Can someone please identify this part, please tell me what it is, its on the right hand side of the engine as you're looking at it (peugeot 308 1.6 vti), the vaccum pump comes first, then the thermostat housing, and then this part, its kind of hiding under the air intake pipe, you would probably have to remove the battery and battery tray in order to remove the 4 bolts holding it to the block, and thats exactly where it attaches too, the engine block, just below the rocker cover, this appears to be the final oil leak I have that needs fixing, it has an electrical connection plugged into the top of it, at first I thought it was a breather pipe.

Thanks in advance.

Unplug and get the part number if you can.

I've had a quick look on Servicebox, could it be item 4?

Thanks for that, ive just registered for service box after seeing your picture, it was a great help, I think that part has something to do with the variable valve lift motor, in the picture below, im pretty sure thats the part you can see sticking out the back of the section I photographed in the original picture, maybe you can confirm:

OH DAMN !!! and thanks, my mechanic just suggested to me that it might be easier just to lift the whole engine out of the car to get the back of it, sort out any oil leaks at the back and then just drop it back in, that motor is right at the back and with the engine set right back against the bulkhead, its going to be a PITA to get too, id says windscreen wipers would have to come off so you can remove the cover below them, battery and box out, air filter unit out, and possibly the engine mounts so you can push the engine forward slightly.

Remove the front of car then engine practically falls out

Sounds a bit extreme unless leak really bad

Is it actually leaving a mess though as these engines are heavy drinkers at times

All over the bottom engine cover, it was that thick with oil and dirt that I took the cover off, took it to the jet wash to blast it all off, made a mess of the jetwash lol.

But as the view is a bit restrictive, I can see the oil over that sensor and the air filter box as far as I can see, I got thrown off the scent of that oil leak as it originally had another oil leak at the bottom oil filter housing seal which was really bad, and the vacuum pump (replaced with a new pump), but after those were all fixed and still losing loads of oil, it lead me to look elsewhere, thats when me and my mech discovered this one.

Im starting to wonder if its having breathing problems and blowing out seals because of it, however, vacuum seems to be working fine.
