    A tick is there for life mate... I've got it too on my 1.8 SXi 2001
    It's coming from the (behind the air box, the thing it clips on) round black box i think.
    Nothing to worry about, i hope!

    This has been mentioned before. The valve on the airbox is part of the emissions control system and it meters fuel vapour from the petrol tank system back into the intake to be burnt (fuel vapour contains loads of nasty chemicals that harm the enviroment and people)
