Need a bit of help with transmission breather hose for a WK CRD

Was installing a new skid plate and noticed a black breather hose from the back of the transmission to the engine compartment.
The engine compartment end is melted, like it was on the exhaust manifold.

Not sure how it happened, but I suspect the end of the hose should be tied to something in the engine bay, but not sure where.

Can one of you WK CRD owners tell me where the transmission breather hose should attach to and should the hose just be wide open or does it have some sort of cap on the end?

One end is on the transmission and the other has a plactic breather cap on the end.

I believe it should be clipped to the passenger side area near the coolant tank.....I moved mine over the drivers side....or cool side of the engine.

I see this is an old post but im having problems with my transmission breather vent leaking out fluid. It's always been tucked up near the throttle body, has a white plastic cap on the end. Really don't know why fluid should be coming out of it. It leaked onto the hot engine one day and the fluid caught fire for a minute.

I have not seen a fluid leak from my transmission breather hose. I did have a fluid leak on the front differential breather tube, i blamed that on the dealer for not fully filling the front differential and so the fluid was overheating. I drained and fully filled the front differential and all was well.
