I 'm guessing HVAC duct under the carpet of a seat.

My first impression is a ventilation pipe for the ECM box.
Inspect it for a Volvo part number, then post the part number and any other markings you find.

+1 on ECM box vent pipe.

As above, check for any markings but also look at the box's outboard (distal) side for a hole which'd accept the pipe.

I like the "tt" abbreviation (for "to the") in your CHMSL.

It goes somewhere near the front of the engine. Did you look at the underside of the ECM box?
