Help needed please

So replaced the starter this morning, easy enough but a connector that three pipes going into has broken, must be really brittle. Any suggestions please how to fix?

If I need a new one what connector is it I'm looking for?

Many thanks

Bodged it for now but if someone can tell me what set of pipes and connector it is so I can order a new one I would appreciate that. Thanks

Sorry nobody has responded here. They might have the same problem I do: that photo is so close, I can't tell what im looking at, Haha. Back up and give me some perspective?

Also, tell us if these are coolant, or vacuum, or what? Then we can be more useful to you.

It might be helpful to take a look at the parts diagram for the 986: https://www.porsche.com/all/media/pdf/originalparts/usa/986_USA_KATALOG.pdf

Sorry I thought someone would recognise it as it is above the starter motor and under the throttle body and it broke as I did the starter motor.

I believe its a venturi pipe, one goes to intake, one goes to intake and one somewhere else

Also anyone reccommend where to buy porsche parts please.

Cheers
