Hosed!

More like de-hosed actually …
For a while now, the passenger side washer jet on GBMINI#6 has not been working. I assumed it was due to the cold weather – although the car has heated washer jets, I figured maybe one heater was broken, and hoped to find time to visit MINI of Peabody one day (it’s been ages!)

Well yesterday was up to 40, and today we got to 50; but still the washer jet wasn’t working, so I decided to see if there were any kinked hoses.
When I opened the hood, I noticed a puddle of greenish fluid collected around the passenger side suspension strut! Looks like washer fluid, I thought – and proceeded to unscrew/unclip the sound deadening sheet from the underside of the hood. And there, I found a loose hose from the washer jet:

Once found, it was easy to re-attach, and hey presto I have two washer jets again! This must be the first ever MINI repair that I’ve done for myself ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Ian, I’m thinking you need to cut down on your “Air” time in that MINI… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    You’ll be glad to know that we have had lots of rain and lower,50ยบ-60ยบ, temps out here in SoCal right now. Snow level down to 3500′ this week. Kittie and I did venture out in rain to visit my daughter, you know the one with the MC, down in San Diego and the usually stupid rain drivers here in SoCal were being quite good. Only one accident on the way home and it looked like they rolled a truck.

  2. Is that something that may happen soon? I did the Facebook thing at MF but for the life of me I don’t get it… or Twitter or texting or My Space or any of the others!

    Well I hope your cranium keeps a check on the grey matter slippage.

  3. Went to change something at Facebook and realized I had my pass word but never wrote down the Yahoo account I had to register to use as Facebook doesn’t do Earthlink? Now what?
