It is the drain for air conditioning condensation. I was going to say heater core drain for when it springs a leak or [goes bad]. Is there two of these hoses in different locations or dose one serve both purposes?

How do you change the heater hose on a 96 Achieva?

Unfortunately, the easiest way to change the hose (firewall connections) is from under the car. If your Achieva has the dual hose with the black valve across both lines, make sure you go to the dealer for the replacement. It's important for proper operation. Replacing with regular heater hose will cause problems down the road.
