MD inspection needs to get a clue...Unka' Bart, can you help?  I think one
of those blue ones might do the trick :)

The "rail" (bracket) on the firewall originally (earlier cars) held the
windshield washer bottle.  That bottle is now down low, up front.  That
bracket on our cars ('91 200q--i think some earlier 200s also have it) is
for the optional "intensive washer" system which uses a much higher pressure
and concentrated fluid.  I've never seen this option in the US, but someone
else may have.

The can on the RF fender, behind the air box, is the fuel filter, at least
on mine.  

The charcoal cannister is buried in a fender somwhere--if it's like my old
Rabbit, right side.
