That may very well be your TC vent tube. The fitting is pressed in on some TC and it may have come out.

It should be hooked up most likely the TC case breather or a diff breather

Thanks

I will look for the right location after I get my Jetta out of my shop (stinking EGR cooler.......... arrrrrrrrgh)
I am assuming that it should be upper passenger side of TC right?

It's to keep water out of the trans/tcase or whatever it's attached to during water crossings.
