Megane 1.6i CC mystery pipe

Post by mickthemaverick » 09 Jul 2019, 13:17

Can someone tell me the purpose of the arrowed pipe in the photo. It comes round the front of the battery and ends as in the pic. It is a friend's car so I have no manual etc.. Click on pic to zoom for a full view.

Thanks in advance! :)

I think this a battery gas vent pipe. Probably should go somewhere though rather than just flapping round the engine bay!

Unfortunately, I don't know where it should go.

It just looks like a bit of sleeving Mick.

Venting pipes for batteries are usually only where they are stored inside a vehicle like the Xsara Picasso.

Thanks for the ideas, I may have to trace it back and see what it is connected to, if I find out I'll post the answer. Other suggestions are still welcome :? :?
