Hose hanging down??

Recently had my radiator replaced (weekend before last). Today, someone brought it to my attention that I have a hose hanging down from the engine.

When I went to look at it, sure enough. It is the small hose that goes into the front axle.

Can someone tell me what this is and where it connects to?

The white connector that is in the hose is now partially worn off. It appears that it "pops" in place somewhere.

Could this be a product of the radiator replacement and any potential damages??

Yikes! A little concerned now.

Thanks

That is your axle vent hose which is supposed to be held by clips next to the driver's side of the radiator.

Condensation from the a/c drains out via a very short tube that protrudes from the bottom of the passenger side firewall.

ok...so it doesn't connect to any thing just draws in air from the outside? I'll look for clips near the coolant overflow tank.

Yes I thought that was the one he was talking about. Wrong one.

It is just a vent hose, its other end doesn't connect to anything. The rear axle has a similar hose, so does the transfer case and on newer TJs, the transmission too.

feel much better now. I didn't find any type of clips so I just ran it up through the "channel" on that side of the radiator.

You can just use a nylon zip tie to secure it to something so it won't fall down again.
