Diesel smoke behind headligt


Recommended Posts


When I bought the car the drivers side headlamp squirter was broken and on cold start up there was blue smoke coming up from behind the passenger side headlight (bargaining points on price).


I sourced a new one and fitted it. To do this I had to remove the front bumper and headlight and whilst the bumper was off noticed a "tin box " with a flexible metal pipe coming from it about 1" in diameter below the passenger side headlight.


The flexible pipe has unwound and just resembles a spiral decoration so this is obviously where the smoke/fumes are coming from.


My question is what is this item and what does it do so I can source parts to repair?


Any pointers appreciated.
