Much appreciated can't find it in the Haynes or anywhere

Oops nearly forgot I'm talking about the small white reservoir just to the left of the coolant tank! As you look at it.

That's from a UK PT, I have no idea, but one of our UK might.
I'm curious myself.

Might have something to do with the clutch.

That's my hunch - nearly all UK PTs are manual.

I agree that it's the clutch reservoir. It's the UK, so I guess this thing is right hand drive. That's why it isn't where it is on US 5 speeds. Where is your brake master? I assume that is also on the right side, since I think they feed off of each other.

Thanks again, here's a few pics of the layout of the right hand drive 2.0L if anyone was wondering.

Interesting air box set up. That thing looks huge. Or is that a plastic cover over the battery, in front of the air box?

Yeah it's part of the box above the filter like an expansion/extension... My first thoughts was it was strange and big when I first saw it as it's kinda behind the flow, but yeah it just hovers over the battery.
