could be an air intake hose, see if you can follow it to wherever it connects to

Get some Bondo or equivalent fiberglass autobody filler and patch the hole.


97 SE, one owner with only !12k miles on it - MN vehicle. I'm on the buyer's side. This rust with exposure is lingering deal-breaker. Logical advice to follow hose and also patch. Thank you.

Your welcome. Plenty of articles online for basic auto body work if your doing the work yourself. Youtube has more than a few videos. As far as the hole , a pic would be nice.
