What is this tube?

I was replacing a cabin filter and noticed this clear tube coming from left side fender and not connecting anywhere

Do any of you know where it should go???

It's the battery vent tube. The black plastic elbow connects to the battery.

Yes, it only works on specific batteries with the vent hole. Most newer replacement batteries do not have a vent hole so most people just tie the tube back out of the way (or remove if desired).
