What is this dripping pipe?

Hi All,

Help please! My car has been dripping water lately, and I've found the culprit - some sort of overflow valve? It is a bent soft rubber at the outlet, with some kind of rubber flap. Location is on the drivers side of the gearbox, near the driveshaft. In the (poor) photo, taken under the car (near a hot exhaust!), fwd is to the left... Tried to find on RealOEM, with no joy.

Have you parked it with the A/C on?

Well, the snowflake symbol is lit on the climate control, but it is doing more heating these days... It has probably dripped more when idling and stationary for a time, such as just now when getting it on the ramps for the photo!

Nothing to worry, that is your water drain for the A/C condensor.
