Whilst servicing the car at the weekend, I came upon this tube. It's not connected, and I didnt unplug it from anything. Should it be connected to something?

Someone's removed your flux capacitor matey from your Foz..how rude !!

From Wikipedia:
"De-flux capacitoring" - procedure of removing the flux capacitor from a vehicle in order for it to be able to go over 88mph without disappearing into the space-time continuum. Often performed on Subarus.

That plugs into the underside of the air inlet pipe you have currently removed.

Its part of the "Evaporative Emission control system".

The auxiliary purge solenoid should be on that pipe.

Also one of your HT leads looks loose!

That red lead in the photo laying on top of the inner wing is a completely disconnected HT lead, assume that is back on now!

All the Ht leads are back on, It's just when idling it judders occasionally, which it has never done before. I will have a poke about when I reconnect the pipe.

If you've reconnected that hose then you'll have changed the idle adaptions, best to reset the ECU (refer to jolly green monsters website).

If that pipes not connected it will be a bit lumpy, probably not as bad as having a vac leak elsewhere though.
