    28995CD7-E8B9-4E6A-B514-42FB66F02D20.jpeg I found this bracket laying at the bottom of the windscreen near to where the wiper connects to the car, just under the lip on the bonnet.

    I recently had the cam belt replaced along with the water pump during a service. I imagine it’s from that occasion and it was either replaced with new or accidentally missed.

    Does anyone know where it should be fitted so I can check?

    Photo attached (hopefully)

    The car is a 2013 Seat Leon FR 2.0 TDI.

    Thanks!

    From the orientation of the mystery part in the picture, it looks like the bottom section clips together to leave two circular holes. I’d guess that it’s some form of clip to hold a couple of rubber hoses in a specific location / position.

    Yes, it clips together and it seems to stay closed well so doesn’t seem to be broken but it’s the location of it’s use that is puzzling me. On brief inspection of the hoses I’m unsure.

    Also, the circular holes are slightly different sizes.

    Just found this, different part number but seems to be the same sort of setup.

    Item number 9 - description is Dual Clip

    If you Google just 133 687 B it reveals several variants all named "Reservoir Hose Bracket".
    So I guess a good look around and under the Expansion Tank may produce a clue

    Hard to work out what size hoses it fits to, but if it is a reservoir hose bracket then perhaps it retains hoses coming out of the screenwash tank?

    Looking under my bonnet at lunch time and I spotted that bracket. It is between the coolant and brake fluid reservoirs fitted to the bulkhead opp the oil filler cap, it has two pipes clamped that emerge from below and head towards the front of car. Sorry no photo as I had no time.
