Oil pipe ‘clip’


Recommended Posts

Was cleaning under the car today, wiping the muck from the oil pipe fittings. The metal fitting easily came away from the oil pipe as it enters the hose. I remounted it for the purposes of the picture. 

The part is so flimsy that I cannot see what purpose it served, but would welcome some reassurance this is the case!

I think it is just a finisher to tidy up the fittings on push fit connectors, sometimes they are just plastic. From your photo it looks like it has been fitted the wrong way round. I have the same fittings on may car and the supplier didn't include the finishing caps and it's been fine.
