Help - what is this pipe?!

Just noticed this pipe is split whilst tightening front lip spoiler - what is it?! I need the car tomorrow to do some distance. Hopefully air-con related?

The pic is taken from just in front of the drivers side front wheel - black rubber pipe split.

Looks like one if the turbo hoses!?. Can't really tell from this angle.
If I were you, I would cut the pipe and insert a short sleeve and clamp it down with a pair of jubilee clips. You can buy hose repair sleeves but a temporary fix will keep you on the road for now. Just a thought.

Power steering, it's only the outer protective rubber.
