Windshield reservoir hose routing.
 
When I bought the car, the reservoir had a leak (where it fits into the clip). So I plastic welded it with the JB stuff and let it sit for a week.

Hooking it back up I guess I underestimated the routing and didn't take enough pictures before taking it apart.

I have the motors back where they go proper, and the front and rear jets spray as they should.

However, questions remain:

There's a T / check valve with directions labeled as 's' 'p' and 'd'. What function does this serve? Where does each direction go? Wondering why there's just one, instead of one on each motor...

There is this fitting on the top - what goes there?

I have had trouble finding answers online, or in Haynes/Chilton. Hence, a post. Thanks.

I decided to compare it to my 740's reservoir (duh).

The 's' 'p' and 'd' on the T fitting correspond as such:

p - to pump
d - to ... 'driver' ?
s - to a hose that doesn't connect to anything, just air

The fitting on the top of the reservoir has a hose that also goes to nothing, just air.

Still unsure of why there's a T on the pump for the front sprayers, but not the rear.

That T should go to the headlight washers / wipers, as they activate together with the windshield washers.

That fitting should only be a vent AFAIK.

Vent indeed. Found the tube I pulled off when I started the plastic welding gig and put it back on yesterday.

My car doesn't have headlight washers. (?)
