The overall condition of that car never ceases to impress me, 23 years old and 139k miles and it is still really good.

I also cleaned this up yesterday....

Well that made a mess, finally tracked it down to the front Safety Valve return line connector. LHM was tracking along pipes & support plate making it look like it was the height corrector....so I will take that as a bonus.

Item is 5280 P5 - hydraulic return tube sleeve Diam 3 NFP
Used on BX, CX, Xan, XM - height correctors and elsewhere

Listed in stock here:
https://www.bxparts.eu/en/hydraulic-ret ... antia.html

Straight ones can be improvised, but elbows more tricky.
Always assumed these were black 'rubber', but your photo (and the ad) shows originally transparent.
Haven't yet managed to find a modern/generic 3mm ID flexible elbow.

One window (drivers) is playing up by dropping (under power) at an angle....upon investigation all wires etc are in very good state (I still greased them)...........it is the clip at the top of the windows trailing edge, totally missing but with the slider in its rummer.

I think I an correct that it is part number : 95291417 DOOR WINDOW GUIDE
Anyone know a source for these glass clips ?

And I HATE finding this !! (missing door seal membrane)
