Where does this go?!

#1 Post by Jason Lindquist » Fri Oct 12, 2018 4:09 pm

Three more questions for the group.
1. Are these sunroof cables trash or usable?
2. What holds this vent up/to the body?
3. Where does this pipe/tube go?
Thanks!

Is this a battery strap or washer fluid bottle strap? Thanks!

Looks like a washer fluid container strap/fuse box cover strap for C cars.

Thanks Dave. Any idea on the pipe/tube in the prior pics?

The pipe/tube is the fuel tank vent. It's now in place. Getting closer!

1. No sunroof part is ever trash as someone will always want it as a mold/template 2. airbox for front cowl is held in place by 2 L shaped brackets. See here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=31084&hilit=airbox&start=15 And Wm Webster in Mississippi had some nice gaskets for the sealing of the airbox. Unsure if he still has any.

Jason and Dave,

No; it's the strap to hold the battery down (in the battery box) on the C series.
The strap to retain the fuse box cover and washer reservoir in place has rounded end-tips; NOT open hooks.
