In Topic: What Diameter Is The Vacuum Tubing For Windscreen Wash Tubing

10 December 2012 - 09:34 PM

i know this is pure laziness as I could go out and measure it but I was wondering this today and surprised to see it on the forum so thought I'd ask anyway, but does anyone know for sure the i.d. of the washer tubing for the mk2.5?

yeah i put in random names and email addresses so I can get new qoutes based on changing my car, having additional drivers etc. it is a joke really, job description really shouldnt come into it (especially if you dont have your car insured for commuting!). the fact here we need to specify if we commute using our cars is a joke in itself). my mate who lives in germany says its much better there as you insure the car not 'yourself' therefore anyone can drive it and prices are sensible. I cant believe in this day and age the whole industry isnt regulated.

mate tell me about it. i was sitting at a red light two years ago when someone run into the back of my car. my insurance is know £40 a year more even thought it was not my fault. apparently because i was involved in an accident I am deemed to be more likely to be involved in another. complete joke, what are you meant to do, run a red light so the person behind you doesnt go into the back of you? even more annoying I enquired as to what discount i would get if i completed teh IAM course...£7 discount :angry: so you can be innocently at not to blame involved in an accident and they justified this as a £40 increase but if you have shown the aptitude and have the skills to be IAM accredited it is only worth £7 off. sigh, rant over....

If stuck on at all...mine is a little clip fitting which I have at the top of my driver side A-pillar.

Steven, I'm not sure about the wiring looms on the facelifts, but retro-fitting interior lights is dead easy as it's just a matter of tapping into the existing loom if need be. The bravery part is required for the roof lining cutting, but even this is straightforward if you take a lot of care. Keep in mind, it's easy to take an extra little bit off if your initial cut is too small - not so easy to put it back on if you cut it too big!


cheers mate, i always knew that it if need be I could splice into the courtesy light loom, but my knowledge of electronics and splicing/crimping/soldering skills are non-existent! if it was a plug and play job i'd definitely give it a go though! I keep meaning to remove the light and have a peek at the wiring but keep forgetting to. My girlfriend is off for a long weekend though this weekend and I plan on giving the car a day long clean and prep for winter (including an attempt at a few stone chip repairs :unsure: ) so i'll have a good investigation into what's hiding behind the roof lining.
