What is the open hose Right Rear near wheel?

Recommended Posts


I've been reading this forum for over a year but this is my first time posting, since I've finally found the courage to fix things myself :)


Can someone tell me what is that 'open hose' (see picture) at the right rear of the car?

I found some watery drips near that area which slightly red.

I am wondering if it is coming from there or I have a leak or something else.


Thanks a lot for help :)


My car is a 986, 2003 S

Look at this area and around the filler cap and determine the source of the coolant. Is it coming from overspill when topping up? Is it a faulty pressure cap (Cheap fix)?  Or is coming from the bleed housing as these sometimes leak as a result of rusted holding down screws.  You will see that the one in the picture is leaking.  You can check for leaks with a handful of soapsuds.

Coolant checks can be deceptive. Always check the coolant level when the car is cold and in the same location in your parking bay.  Side to side or end to end can give different readings on heavily sloping ground. It is best to top up when the car is on level ground.
