I definitely have a tube like that emerging from the air baffle underneath the front of the car. Pointing straight down through a little cutout. Underneath the wiper fluid and ECU box. Not sure what it’s connected to.
Cars I've owned:
- 2015 to current: 2001 Volvo V70 2.4T
- 2007 to 2015: 2002 Subaru Legacy L Wagon

- 1999 to 2003: 1994 Toyota Camry LE

I looked and it is already there it seems to be the drain pipe for drain on the windshield base. It must of been a spare that I found and worried I was missing a vital part. It was fun thou staring something that had so many scratching there heads LOL

Did you check the drivers side? One on each side. Drivers side is buried! If drivers side, perhaps bumped off during a booster replacement? June

I don't know what it's for, but it comes out below the car, behind the bumper, in the right front corner kinda underneath the headlight. My XC70 is on jacks right now and I can see the oval exit of the pipe right there.

The photos are of a similar looking part but it's not the same one.

Excerpt From Thread In Link:
"It is a vent for the computer module in front of the power steering pump, just behind the windshield washer filler. It is used to cool the computer modules. Great at help from Greg at Docksteader Volvo in Vancouver."
