That tube is for the heatercore return line. You probably have it bypassed or a rubber hose taking its rusty place.

The plastic vacuum T Modulator valve appears to be for the vacuum canister reserve tank. With it not hooked up you risk a vacuum leak as well as not having proper vent door blending.

I changed my daily car Opel Omega B to Omega A, which is way better condition. And Beretta just keeps going.

Damn. Fuel leak next to tank, not from the tank, because it's new but from lines... To-do list: new rear hub bearings, rear valve cover gasket, 3 spark plugs, motor oil and filter and maybe some rear brake parts....

Now that is my kind of list. Nice and short! I don't think there is enough room in one post for me to list all mine.
I know how you feel, there are two things that I hate to work with, coolant and fuel.

I dunno if you need a lock plate puller for the beretta but the 90 lumina I had same year as my beretta I didnt need the lock plate puller. Its a easy process like 2 min to get the wheel off and some screws. Just takes a little time to get the old switch out and fish the wires for the new one back down the column.



Actually just rent or buy a harmonic balancer puller it works pretty good

Steering wheel pullers are WAY cheaper and you can rent those too. He would also need the lock plate removal tool which is pretty cheap and can also be rented. But he's in Finland, so who knows if they have auto parts stores with rental programs there....? Plus he already fixed it 3 weeks ago, so all this info is null and void... lol

Actually I fixed that problem in May, 2011 but any information is welcome. :D And yes I own steering wheel puller kit and I don't think that tools are for rent in here.
