Headlight questions

Wondering what the two tunes connected to both the headlights are for. They both run down to the behind of the center radiator.

The wondow sticker says the car has headlight washers. Dont see anything in there when i remived the bumper. PO had the corner trims without the washer holes. Should I reinstall them? Is it worth the time and the money?

Also the headlights each have a connector receptacle that is empty. Looked around but couldn't find any wires with connectors hanging loose.

Not sure if it's what you're referring to, but the headlamps have a drain on them. That could be what you're looking at.

Then again, if the window sticker says you have headlight washers, that tube could be them!

I can't imagine how they can be drains as they are on top. Vent is a possibility. I'll take a picture and post it soon.

Yes! Right, that's what I meant, vents. I believe there was a mention of them in the owner's manual. I'll try to dig it out and let you know what it says about the vents on the headlights. May help you to identify them.
