Hello all, have just been delving in the battery compartment of my GTV (02 reg TS), and was wondering what the loose cable / tube that can be seen on the left in the attached photo is for? I can't see where it should go, or what it should do, and the car seems to working fine without it being connected to anything?

Hello. It looks like a breather pipe or overflow for the battery. Have a look on the side of the battery and see if there is a hole.

It is indeed the battery breather. Should be connected to the battery if the battery is not a sealed for life unit.

It stops the build up of hydrogen in the boot which is somewhat undesirable!
