Air intake to filter 1.9 02 DCI

Hi all.

ok, heres the problems I have.
1.9DCI 2002 Laguna Priv.

Problem 1

Under the bonnet, at certain revs, their is a vibration, ots not mechanical, I have sourced the issue to the following (not sure of technical wording)
Where the large box that holds the air filter is help, there is a plastic pipe screwed on that simply leads to just behind the front headlight, its clearly an air intake pipe that sucks air into the filter area.

Where this pip joins to the air filter block, its far too loose, looks a little worn, and the screws and in fact plastic pip are now loose, thus it vibrates.

What is the best option for fixing this. I thought about some sort of tape, but if anyone has a better option that would be cool.

Problem 2

A metalic vibration sound from underneath the car, looks possibly like the silver metal thing that seems to cover the exhaust pipe, what is it, whats it for and why the hell does it rattle, lol.

Thanks in advance all
