Wiper fluid reservoir mystery part-- what part is this?
I was taking the windshield washer fluid tank out, to clean it out (the strainer "gel clog", and possible fluid pump fail).
WHen I took the tank out, I found two things rolling around inside the reservoire tank. One was a white-translucent strainer, about 1.75in diameter. I suspect this is supposed to be at the inlet where you pour the washer fluid in from the top (must have fell long time ago. I vaguely remember seeing it when I first got the car..)
the other small part that I found got me stumped. I looked at RealOEM trying to identify where it came from, and couldnt' figure it out.
it is a small, blue, cylindrical tube with a metal strainer on one end. it's 17mm tall, about 1cm in diameter. (approx 5/8in tall, 3/8in diameter)
I don't think it's the part of the strainer going to the fluid pump (that one I pulled out gel-coated, and just cleaned)
so.. what is this blue thing? where does it go?
