Well, the issue is resolved. Re-attached the hose and clamp, and my Golf TDI is running normal again.
I'm looking to get a new, better skid plate. Any recommendations? I see a few when I do my online searches... but to be honest, my Golf is stock so I don't know much about any aftermarket vendors or parts. I see a steel one from ECS Tuning https://www.ecstuning.com/b-assemble...nds/1j0698930/ but wondering if there are better options.
Any suggestions?

Would you recommend this skid plate?

Those are both good choices, Dieselgeek.com also has a good one.

That hose is most likely going to pop off again. The barbs/nubs wear down; so plan on replacing it. I've changed both upper and lower hoses on my Golf.
