    Guys, I was doing a routine inspection of my engine bay and found this rubber pipe dangling loose. I could not locate its origin, except that its coming somewhere from behind the battery.

    What is this pipe and why is it dangling loose? Any cause for concern? I don't remember having seen this before.

    Most probably the battery tray drain pipe. :)

    That is the drain pipe for ACC. No cause for concern.

    I am on cell phone network and unable to view pics. If this pipe is coming from battery area dont worry. There is a drainage pipe. Seen that for the first time in my Kinetic during student days.

    Yes looks like AC pipe to me too.. Easiest way to check keep a cup under it. Keep engine on idle. Keep AC on full blast. Shut down everything after 3 mins. Wait for some time and u should be able to collect water

    Lovely forum! Thanks for the super quick (and comforting) replies! I did think it must be the AC drain pipe. Kept the AC at LO and waited for a couple of minutes. Nothing happened so I thought let's pick some brains out here! Thanks guys!

    Nothing to worry about, it's normal. Even my tjet has the same dangling around right from first day
