    Default CDTi 150 Airbox hose?

    Was fitting the HID's to the main beam today and noticed there was a small hole in the airbox and a rubber pipe not attached to it but hanging loose. What is this pipe, where does it go / come from and what would happen if it was not attached?

    I would think if it is a drain it would be on the bottom. Should have said but its on the side towards the bottom on the engine side, not the wing side.

    It is a drain hole and the "funny" shaped tubing,fits onto an open pipe,way down past/in amongst,the air con pipes you can see by the side of the air box.(It's piggin awkward to fit on),so most people leave it loose to drain away to it's hearts content,(if you ever get any water in your air box that is!!).
