    Default Random Airbox Pipe

    So I was busy changing bulbs on the vectra the other day when I noticed a pipe leading out from the bottom of the airbox. Smallish pipe, could somebody please shed light on where it goes/wtf it does?? As I doubt its an emergency exit for bugs!

    I found it when I removed the Airbox to fit my hids. It's a pain to get the pipe back in properly if you pull it out. I assumed it was a drainage point too.

    it's not a drainage pipe. i was looking at this aswell when changing bulbs, there are no holes on the inside of the airbox. it is simply there to anchor the airbox at the bottom
