Kidneys & side vents now on. Excuse the dust

Had a leaky supply hose for the SMG system, went to replace it and a damned quick release clip broke on the pump end. It was already in the unlock position but the hose was jammed so I had no option but this 10 cent clip appears to not be available :(

Anyway, here are the pics of where its at today.

I should leave stuff alone. BMW say you cannot get that 10c part separately but will gladly sell a new pump for 4.2k or a accumulator for $900 and I can take it off that.

Anyway here is the solution a friend of mine came up with. He made a stainless retainer that clips on the top of the hose and is held on to the accumulator supply by a clamp.

Here is the shot of the o-ring in the bore with the red quick release out. The red quick conncter clips in just under the brass collar.

New hose in without the retainer.

With the home made retainer to keep it in the accumulator.

Hopefully this fixes it, I will put it back together tonight and test.

I drove it the last 2 days  :thumbsup:

Well no more mods to go (might have some more suspension stuff coming) but that wont be for a while so I am back into the 'clear my head' midnight drives starting now

EDIT: rear pic. I will take some better pics when the sun comes out.
