Hi all,
First time posting.
This weekend while on a long road trip, the driver in front me noticed a loose part on the underside of my '07 Rav4 that had become detached. After pulling over, I noticed this tube with a large gash in it that had separated from another section to which it was connected. I don't know a whole lot about cars. Would anyone here know what this tube is called and how difficult/pricey to repair/replace? This is on the driver's side.
Thanks in advance.

It looks like something connected to your emissions system, like the charcoal canister or fuel tank vent. Is your check engine light on? Please don't let it drag on the ground, secure it with something and get it to a shop before it becomes a major expense.

Wiring harness? Perhaps for trailer hitch lights?

Thanks everyone. Yes, I do have it taped up and scheduled an appt. today with a mechanic. Someone mentioned a fuel tank vent hose and I believe this is the part.

I certainly hope it's not part of the EVAP system and whatever it was attached to didn't fall or get ripped off. That system is $1300!

The mechanic patched up the vent hose and added some clips to secure it in place. Best guess is while driving over the weekend on a long 1k mile trip, parts on gravel roads, I must have run over something to dislodge the hose and create a gash in it. Glad it wasn't anything serious.

I've had this part replaced last year, and have to replace it again this month. It is in a stupid spot and not covered well
