What are the 2 hoses right behind the battery on a MY99 996 cab?

If they're part of the aircon system is there any way to temporarily disconnect one side of each one without losing the gas and having to recharge the system?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Loren. They are all rubber and the part numbers are 996.572.583/5.01.

As I was poking around in the area I kept seeing small amounts of vapour. Car is stone cold. Any idea where this is coming from?

The bigger picture is that there is big a hole which has audio etc wires coming through at an upward angle behind the pipes. Water coming down the windscreen get's on the wires and trickles all the way down in to the cabin - hence my posts about wet driver's footwell! There is a rubber grommet/plug but it's flat and isn't doing a very good job. There are a lot of cables going through because of the Kewnwood TV/SatNav unit.

I'm contemplating going crazy with a tube of bathroom sealant! Any better ideas would be gratefully recieved.

The urgency is due to the pretty hard rain we're having here!

Done with grommet - managed to get the wires coming out of the hole on a downward slope so let's hope gravity works for me now! Blasted with bathroom silicone sealant then covered with a peice of plastic sheeting. Fingers crossed!

Thanks for not letting me take those hoses off :)
