    Loose hose, where should it go?? (Clio Mk2 Ph 3)

    Hi! I found this loose hose (circled below) behind the left headlights (left-hand car). Does anyone know what it is for and where it should go? :oops: It comes from far below, although I can't quite see from where looking from above. Found nothing in the Haynes manual. Thanks!
