What is this behind the bumper /grille?

Post by 81s » Mon Nov 23, 2020 1:35 am

Im prepping for a tear down. And am trying to identify the lines and other things before I get started. Does anybody know what the black box under the cooler is? It has a corrugated hose or tube running under the headlight on the driver side

I assume the top cooler is trans? I figured out there is no oil air /oil cooler already and these cars are equipped with water /oil cooler

It's the windshield washer reservoir.

The cooler that you see there is the trans cooler and yes, the box under it is the windshield washer reservoir. I removed both of them on my car (and installed a bigger trans cooler). I never use windshield washers on my nice cars that aren't driven in the elements, so I don't need the reservoir. LSA guys either delete it or put a smaller one somewhere else.
