Question Headlight Vacuum Hose???

Does anyone know what this hose located in the passenger side fender behind the headlight goes to?.....When the car is running it has vacuum supply/suction?
I tried to see where it went,but the only thing I could even figure it 'might' go to,is what appears to be a little nipple that's broken off the back of the headlight housing?

Unhappy Re: Headlight Vacuum Hose???

UPDATE: Well,it looks like I'll be getting a replacement vacuum reservoir....Since mine is MIA!(probably how they tracked the hit & run to a PT Cruiser);All that remains of mine are the 2 tabs where the bolts hold it to the frame,so I'll be putting that on my list for my next salvage yard run(when it gets warmer!),or I can always get a brand new one for $24.41 on Ebay(w/free s&h):Chrysler 4891403AA Cruise Control System Reservoir | eBay

Kind of an odd price on the cruise control system on eBay. Wonder how he came up with that??

I'm glad I'm not the only one on this website that regularly plans a "salvage yard run".
