Identification of loose pipe in engine bay

Hi guys,

I was doing a quick wipe down of my rather dusty engine bay today when I noticed a loose piece of piping lodged in the side of my engine bay. It's a thin black pipe that's around 7 inches in length with the text "A831 >EPDM< 5 3L 14:08 T1 TRELLEBORG" inscribed on it. Was disconnected on both ends so I was able to remove it completely.

Here's a picture, with a standard sized name card for scale reference.

Anybody got any idea what piece of piping it's from? Is it something critical that I should be worried about?

Thanks in advance guys!

If you found it on the left side of the engine bay as you look in, it could be the steering fluid overflow. There's a small pipe attached to the filler cap that diverts excess fluid.

Then again it could have been dropped in during the build and they felt it was quicker (and easier) to just leave that one and fit another one

EPDM is the material its made of and Trelleborg are the people who made it. Can't tell you much more than that!
