The pipe is only there to vent battery gases (hydrogen) away from the engine compartment. The other end is open. Also some batteries are not vented, making the pipe redundant.

Having changed my Captur's battery fairly recently.... no, the bottom end of that pipe does not connect to anything

Was it a straight forward in and out change? Some modern battery management systems need a reset, reprogram or kick-start.

For me, it was almost straightforward.... restricted access to the terminals meant I could not disconnect all the stuff on both terminals before the battery was off the car. I did it under restricted lighting with the car half in my garage. But there was no reprogramming required, just the code for the radio (MediaNav) and fingers crossed, the car has run better with the new battery than it had been for many months with the old (original) battery
