    You happen to know where the other end leads? I didn't think vacuum tubes had valves/turns in them.

    i can trace it, it goes into the front area of the car, maybe is this a battery acid drain? because the 2002 9-5's had a battery box

    My first thought was a hose for the headlamp washers because the washer fluid reservoir is in the left front fender. Just a guess though.

    im pretty sure the headlight water sprayer is working but i will verify that, i might need to take the car in for some recall work, maybe i can ask a mechanic there.

    It looks like a battery vent/snorkel hose.
