Right now it is ending aimed at the dipstick area. Not sure if that's where it should end. It's a plain rubber hose, I suspect water, the cowl drain answer. Just need to see where it should be routed, now.

Took the car out for a drive today - no problems at all, so I suspect the drain hose is right, as it doesn't seem to impact driveability. Any ideas where this should be routed or attached? The end of the hose seems to suggest it goes somewhere. I've included a pic of where the hose begins, where I have it hanging, the end of the hose, and a pic of the car from today.

This is an unrestored car, so the engine bay isn't perfectly spotless

Hi,
That is the hose that is part of the wiper-washer system. There should be a plastic 'bag' that hangs off two metal ears on the battery cradle bracket, with a cap on it that has 2 hose attachments. One goes to the washer jets, and one goes into the cab to a bellows mechanism under the dash. You pull on a handle which moves a lever to squash the bellows, which squirts water. It also activates an electric switch that should make the wipers give a wipe or two.
The only drains from the cowl area are 2 large drooping metal tubes with rubber ball looking things on them, either side of the centreline of the engine.
I hope my explanation works, it is much easier if I had a photo! Google 'w111 engine bay' and look at images, and I am sure you will see what I mean. The colour of the hose gives it away.
Cheers, Drew

I bet that's it that makes sense, as I was poking around that area. I haven't used that feature in ages, so I would never know it didn't work. I had a suspicion it was related to the foot operated washer system. I'll look for some images and compare when I see the car again (I am away from it a bit and rarely drive it more than every other week or so).

Thanks for the help.

2 of your posts have " thumbnail attached" yet there are no photos attached? I just purchased a 1959 220SE that has a foot pump under the dash for the windshield washer system but no hoses or tank so I had an interest in seeing the hose you were asking about. Any chance you could repost the photos?

Must be a glitch, the images are working for me from multiple machines. I am posting them again here from an external host.

My car also has the foot pump, probably a related system. I don't have any pics of the washer bag/tank or system, and the hose pics are pretty simple. Here you go:







Not sure when I will be at the car again, but I'll take a pic when I reconnect the hose.

I see the pics now. Not sure why I don't see the earlier ones you posted. Thanks for reposting them.

I thought I posted earlier but it didn't show up, excuse me if this ends up as a duplicate.

Me again. Took the car out for a spin today. Still can't figure out where this hose should be routed. Here's a top view of the washer bag (excuse the grime, one of these days I will detail the engine) - the main washer hose is visible, and the mystery hose is seen perpendicular, lower in the engine bay, coming from the area of the brake reservoir:



The hose type is the same as the hose going from the cowl area to the washer bag.

And as a bonus, here's the car looking pretty today:



Thanks for the help!

Ok, it's easy.
There should be two on the washer bottle top, one tube goes through the firewal and the other to the washer outlet.
Costa.
