OK, What is it?

So, I've had my Celica for less than 2 months, and I'm still learning about it. I go to open the rear compartment for the jack, and find this clear plastic tube in there. What does it do?

Can't get a picture out for a couple of days. I've got an '04 GTS. Just wondering if any one had seen it themselves. The tube is about 1/2 inch diameter, and seems to be attached to the quarter panel on 1 end somehow, then goes forward towards (and possibly around) the wheel well. Anyone else have one?

Maybe that's where I'm supposed to put the drugs.

In the '04 they might have placed it there to protect the wiring going to the tails?

Nope on the pics Isaac. It's lower in the fender and it exits right next to the vent flapper chingus. trust Me its an irrigation tube from the sunroof.

It is. The tube rears its head on both sides of the sunroof (concealed by the frame of the car) and runs through the frame into the back.

Sunroof drainage tube makes sense. I do have a sunroof. The tube is in the jack compartment, on the left side of the trunk.

It runs through the frame and attached to the sunroof. It doesn't just end there.
