Rubber pipe thingy
« on: July 19, 2015, 06:51:35 pm »
Hi Chaps, I was Changing the Oil on the car Yesterday and Decided to clean a thin Clear rubber pipe which ran past the Oil filter which Looks either like a breather pipe or a aircon release pipe but Me being so clumsy I decided to wipe it while pulling downwards and it popped off, Would anyone know what it actually attaches too so I can re-connect it. Thanks

If you are able to post a picture of the pipe and it's surroundings then that may aid us to identify it? What sort of diameter is it?

Great Thanks Dave the pics are brilliant. I will be re-attaching the pipe in the morning, I had a feeling it wasn't anything serious but its obviously there for a reason so I will pop it back on soon as. Thanks again for that Cheers Andy
