New user here, but longtime Volvo owner. Recently discovered an opening in my front bumper on the passenger side of my 2014 S60 T5, which I believe housed some sort of sensor. As you can see in the photo attached, the cover/trim piece has beeen shattered, and the space behind is empty except for a small tube, about 1/2" in diameter. Does anyone know the purpose of this?
Thanks.

is it threaded, there are usually points like this front and back to screw an eye bolt into if you need to be towed.

No, the interior of the tube is smooth. It looks to be some type of plastic or composite material - definitely not metal.

Grendel1960, I was wrong. Taking a closer look, I saw that the interior of the tube is threaded at the far end, and is metal. Based on the suggestion from thepinb, I did some googleing and found this link:

There is also one on the rear bumper on the passanger side. Unfortunately it looks like there is sufficient damage around the front opening that it is probably not possible to replace the cover without replacing the bumper.
Thank you both for your iinput.
