When I removed the airbox (and pollen filter) in my 807, I noticed a rubber tube that wasn't connected anywhere, but looked like it should be. I wasn't able to figure out where the other end of the tube was, but it seemed to go down into the wheel arc area somewhere.

I did notice a suitably sized hole in the bottom of the pollen filter tray, but I don't think the tube is long enough to reach it. Also, it doesn't really make any sense to me to have such a tube into the cabin air intake.

Any ideas? I'm attaching a picture, the tube in question is in the center, right by the brake fluid container.

Any ideas? Thanks.

it is the pollen filter drain tube (you will see hole for it in bottom of pollen filter holder), it is a pain to refit when pollen filter is replaced

Well I had the pollen filter cassette out yesterday, and thought I'd have a proper go at attaching that water pipe. However it appeared to be quite impossible to seat the pipe such that it would stay on even just until I got the cassette back in position. Looking at public.servicebox.peugeot.com there doesn't seem to be any part missing either.

Anyhow, I took a medium-sized paperclip and shaped it to fit around the lip on the water pipe. Seemed to do the trick. (Next time I'll try some bubble-gum...)

Its such a poor piece of design, why isn't the pollen filter housing mounted on guide rails rather than those over centre clips that get broken by first timers to the car. The drain tube could be mounted on the front of the housing.
Think fitting your tube is more difficult beacuse it's out of position due to the LPG equipmeent, I find it best to clip the left side then slide a hand into the housing to locate the drain and then lift it into place but this looks more difficult on yours beacuse of the LPG.
