1992 964 C2 Tail light ventilation


Vehicle Information: Model: C2; Year: 92; Body Type: Targa; Total Mileage: 150k;

While washing my car last weekend I noticed that the center tail light segment was loose at the bottom. After removing the 3 screws along the top and removing the unit I immediately recognized that the tower clips molded onto the back we broken off, probably as a result of a bumper over ride accident of which is evidenced by two gouges on the bumper cover. I am not ready to replace the unit right now. I can't imagine how much it must cost... So I will fabricate something to re secure them. Here is my question: Once I got the unit loose I see rubber tubing connecting the left and right tail light units to the center, and a large tube that connects to a broken plastic extension that must have passed through into the engine compartment. There is a barbed hose fitting molded in the heater duct that is not connected to anything, and I always wondered what it was for, since the distributor vent hose has a separate outlet. I am guessing that there is supposed to be a line that connects this currently unused port to the plastic thru the body fitting and then to line from the rear lights, and that the whole system is intended to provide air to drive moisture out of the light assemblies. Is this correct?
