    Unidentified hose

    I just reccently purchased an '03 Impreza WRX.... While admiring the engine, I noticed a hose that was ziptied to the firewall right behing the downpipe. After examining it I realized that it wasen't connected to anything, and had been melted by the downpipe.......The car came with an nvidia downpipe on it, which I am assuming is larger then the stock downpipe...So my guess is that the hose was touching the pipe which is why they tackishly ziptied it out of the way......




    So my question is this.......What is the purpose of this hose....



    The only things I could think of were that it is mabye used for the drainage of condensed water droplets that come from the air conditioning system, or quite possibly a way to drain the water that could collect in the cabin filter.....I dunno, I'm sure that I'm wrong and under educated in this subject, so thats why I came to you all for an answer........



    Any information would be greatly appreciated......Thanks

    Correct. Keep the hose unobstructed so that condensing water can flow out or you'll end up with water in the cabin. Zip ties to hold it out of the way of the downpipe are very common.
