Hose identification inside left front fender

Hi all,

I took out the headlights today to freshen them up as part of my winter todo list. When I did I stuck my flashlight in the fenders out of curiosity and noticed something odd.

In the left front fender I see a bunch of hoses coming up over the wheel, but one looks like it is disconnected or just left open. I guess it could be an air vent of some sort, but I wanted to see if anyone has been in there and knows.

My car is an 01 S and has PSM (only possibly relevant option I can think of). No known issues.

The first picture is a "no zoom" shot looking back from where the headlight would be.

The second is zoomed in on the hose for clarity.
