Look familiar?

Washed my Box this morning and when putting the bucket away see this. Would of been under pass side rear. Could be off something else but don't remember seeing it on driveway before. Opinions?







Oh and I know it's not IMS related ��

Are both ends clean cut, or is one ragged? If longer, kinda looks like a panel/door seal...maybe for your hatch?

My other thought is that it's a cable sleeve for the convertible top...is it possible that when you removed the soft-top a sleeve fell off the cable?

It's definitely a hose. You can see where its been fitted over something. The other end is cut straight.

This would only be relevant if you have the sport exhaust.

It looks like an overflow tube...possibly coolant or power steering reservoir.
