Today I pulled the drivers side rear wheel and found this hose that i do not know what it is for. It comes out of the axle and goes up and just ends??? It's not connected to anything at the other end. Any ideas????
Tried to find it in my shop manual but no luck....

its the vent tube. If you look up above it you will see a hole in the crossmember that the top end is to be in. They get old and brake off, or some one pulls the rear end for repairs and does not put it back in. As long as water can't get in the axle housing its OK how it is.
