Anyone recognize this hose....?

I put a screw in it to focus better, it is just hanging and goes into the wall just about under the passenger head light. getting a code for vacuum leak and found this while going through all the hoses I could find. Never noticed it before but that does not mean much.

Check the resevoir underneath the header panel below the passenger side headlight.

I believe that's coming from the bottom of the battery housing.

Does your cruise control work? Can you ch age where the air is coming from in the cabin (defrost or panel vents)? If they don't work then that's the vacuum hose needed for them to operate. If it is that hose it connects somewhere under the battery box.

The air is very weak , weak enough where its hard to tell if its even coming out of the passenger side, i dont think it is, I mean there is a slight breeze coming out if you can even call it that. I cant get the battery tray out to check underneath , I think I'm going to have to take it in for that. I think I'm at the extent of my ability for this one.

Cruise control worked, but now that I think about it when I tested it I did not try to use the accelerate etc, I just turned it on and it worked.

My friend, I'm positive that's what the hose is. I've had all that stuff apart a few times and recognize it. That's supposed to be hanging freely so excess acid can drain. It won't harm anything.

I know of a few places that could cause a vacuum leak. Crankcase breather tubes, easy fix, brake booster, easy fix, evap system, easy fix.
