    Help needed to identify blue tube with hole

    Hey guys, new to the forum and Subarus. I have an 2004 WRX Wagon and I was poking around the engine bay replacing a headlight an noticed that a small blue tube had a hole in it. If you can identify what it connects and the severity, it will give me an idea how to tackle the problem.

    Sorry for the crappy phone picture, I wasn't able to get them rotated the correct way and I apologize

    I'm not an expert, but it could be a vacuum line. Do you have a boost gauge?

    It seems that one end comes from the intake after it goes through the circular plastic piece marked "TO E/G" the other end connects to a hose that makes its way up towards the turbo area.

    My boost gauge is working though, so it doesn't seem to be that.

    Hose thats part of the EVAP system. Just go to Autozone, take out the hose and ask for a foot of hose with similar ID. 3.5mm I think. Cut in parking lot, replace, done.

    Looks like it's 4mm. Autozone has something close enough.
