Whats going on here?

Hi all. Just had the bonnet off to change my washer jets, and as I was cleaning the interior I thought I'd run a rag over the engine bay here and there and give it a wipe down. I noticed this part attached to the (intercooler pipe?) Was either missing a bracket or cracked and was loose and had quite a bit of movement in it. Dont think it's going to drop off at all but is there something missing here? Need some expert advice! BTW, it's a TDi, probably obvious from the pics, and I don't have an engine cover for it, was not there when I bought the car. Are these proper hard to get hold of?

Yes, sorry, obviously its cracked, but what should it look like? Anyone have a pic of an intact part.
 
The mounting point where the stud is located on the bracket under the pipe has disappeared and the bracket of the air inlet pet has vibrated against the engine for some time wearing away the edge of the bracket on the air pipe. A replacement bracket is needed on the engine side and the rough edges cleaned up on the air pipe side.

Bracket 16 on here...
