Assuming it's the same as my '91 100 2.0 Avant, the hose may well be
split. There was a thread recently about improvised repairs using
reducer inserts etc. as this is not a cheap hose.

Also, it's worth checking that the metal pipe to which this hose
connects, all the way to the air cleaner isn't blocked by crud -
especially the wire mesh therein. This may be contributing to the hose's
