    What is this?

    When I was replacing my DRL bulbs, I pulled the panel in the fenderwell on the right side, and this was hanging there. Any ideas?

    I couldn't see what it was supposed to connect to, and everything seems to be working...

    Hi robsmith, welcome to the forum.

    I took a look under mine, but only have 12” between the fender and garage wall right now. Removing the access cover, I saw a couple or more convoluted tubings, but each are solidly attached and from the angle I could examine it, could not tell what all they hook up to. Sorry I wasn’t able to help more.

    I miss the days when there were decals under the hood that gave the tune-up specs, and emissions and vacuum components and routing.

    Back when we had like 3 vacuum hoses! (What, distributor advance...Heater hose bypass valve, opener for the aircleaner hot air damper?) Those stickers even gave you the points gap! (Millenials, google that!)
    Thanks for going out to give it a try, and braving the potential spiders that can literally - put up a web from your car to the wall, 13 seconds after you walk right past it!

    This thing definitely looks like a vacuum fitting. or a washer hose.

    Maybe there's a standard wiring harness for everything from the Abarth to the lowly Pop, and this is for a headlight washer that I don't have?

    Hah! Been toying with the idea of buying my wife a real MINI again. I was surprised to find that the first gen MINIs ('00-'06) still have distributors! Talk about ancient tech. ;]

    Someone from another forum suggested I check to see if my rear windshield wiper was functional. I checked, and it wasn’t! Just need to find out where to plug this thing in now.

    Thanks guys!

    Hi, I know I'm late to the show but that is the waterline(I know, it doesn't look like it) that feeds the rear window washer.
    It'll either connect to the washer tank/pump or one of the lines feeding up. You'll have to remove the undertray and/or wheel well liner to see the tank better

    Sonicsdaman: You were correct.
    Took a few minutes this AM to try and find the other side of this tube. Didn't take too long, but I had to look down from inside the hood - and there it was...a rubber tube - looking for someone to connect with. Managed to grab it from the light-door, and reconnected it easily.
    NOW the rear washer works!

    Thanks for all your suggestions and help guys.

    (BTW, the other part of the tube, that actually runs TO the washer bottle, is a rubbe hose. No convolutions

    Cheers!

    Moderators: Feel free to mark this thread solved!

    Of course they did. Computers were pretty glitchy... and the distributor wasn't like one in a Desoto.

    Those Mini still had electronic ignition. No points. Still cheaper to repair, instead of using separate ignition coils, of today’s vehicles. My new 1978 Trans Am had a distributor. Electronic ignition too. Restro mod muscle cars, still use electric distributors. Really not ancient technology.
