I’ve been berating my friend for topping up the screenwash in her car and dropping the cap down into the engine bay.

With prices on eBay all random I phoned the nearest Honda dealership and ordered the part, turns out it’s only £4.20 so no biggy.

First look at it, I said, ‘really, this is it? No retaining strap?’.

The guy said, ‘ye’, give me a minute’.

Then came back with some tubing.


He said to ‘attach the tube to the nubbin under the cap, so when you pop the cap off you won’t lose it again’.


I’ve pretty much always known the caps to be like.


Come on Honda, Is that how your doing screenwash caps for a 2016 Honda Civic.
