    Disconnected hose in the Trunk?

    going thru my trunk today...opened the side compartment where the spare tire jack and stuff is, and find what looks like a large water hose or something, its clear and not connected to anything on one end. I didn't want to pull it to see where it was connected on the other end. Anyone want to shed some light on this and tell me what it is for?


    Thanks!

    I think that may be it.

    Hicks: is it on the right or left side of the trunk? If it is on the right, it may be for the intercooler sprayer

    i have a sliding moonroof, the other WRX i checked did not have one, maybe it is a drain for it in case it rains while it is open or something. The other end runs up the side panel toward the roof.

    it's the sunroof drain. if you ever get some water infiltration, make sure it's not clogged. you should be able to blow through it.

    acuras commonly have that prob.
