Question what is this?

I was looking at the compartment where the jack is today and I notice that there was a hose in there. It was a clear plastic hose just hanging there. The bottom came out when I pulled it, but the top was attached to something. I don't know if it is in the wagons but has anybody else with a sedan notice this before. And if you have do you know what is/is for? I am curious. I even looked in the manual for it but there was nothing in there about it.

It's probably just a drainage tube to get rid of any water that collects within the body, or from the sunroof. By chance, why did you want to pull it out?

The clear tube is the overflow tube that originates from the sunroof splash area. It connects to the sunroof on one side, and connects to a drain near the bottom of the rear quarter panel.

Try to put it back where you found it, and try to locate the drain tube / hole. Otherwise you may end up with a 1/4 panel full of water.

Hope this helps.

You guys are all crazy. That's the recirculating power tube, I replaced mine with a 2" chrome unit and gain twenty HP.

I guess, Kevin's recirculating power tube is letting too much Carbon Monoxide into the cabin.

Since neurons don't re-produce, I guess Kevein ( BlackGT00 ) is stuck in his reduced mental state.

Joesph: I havent seen any hoses yet and I've used my jack a few times to help fix flats. Though I did remember feeling my hand "catch" onto something in there.


JoeT: Is the TSC board server having some problems? I cant seem to get on all day.

Hiroki,

There are problems, but I don't know what they are. I'm sure that James and the ISP crew are working on it.

But the antenna is on the opposite side from the jack? Are you telling me they run a drain from one side all the way around the door to the other side

If I open the bootlid (trunklid) the jack is on the left in a little compartment and the electric antenna is on the left as well....I assume USDM are the same??

My vote is for the antenna drain too... especially if it's on the left side right beside/below the jack compartment on the left side. Just put it back sir and everything will be okay.

SSR: thats what i was thinking…a syphon hose. I am thinking it is a drain tube of sorts since i seen some water or the water film stuff in the tube (and yes i did put it back/reattach it). Not for an antenna though, since the antenna is in the back window. Anyway just curious

It is the drain tube for the power antenna; drain tubes fore the sunroof run down the A and C pillars on both sides.

My Jack is on the same side as my washer fluid, OPPOSITE of that from my antenna.

I didnt realize subaru moved the antenna around.
