    Own a 2000-Z3-3ltr/Sports.
    Perhaps someone can help.
    Purchased a stainless steel clutch hose from Earles.
    Was informed the hose fits all.No problem.
    However as per the applicable photos from e member, removed the CDV- valve (for good)
    The hose sent from Earles clearly has male and female threaded connections.
    At present to make things compatible one requires a stainless steel hose with two females the same diameter.
    This car is not an M.
    Can not understand why one female end on the hose from Earles has one screw in adapter which makes it male.Even if you remove the adapter,the diameter of the now (female) is to small in diameter!
    Numerous threads, relative to an Earles stainless steel hose replacement, appear to have not come across this issue.
    Baffled to say the least!
    Still laying under the car like a Wally!!
    Just my luck weather forecast for the next 2 days 27c- clear skies.
    Now you don’t get that to often in Vancouver.
    Always look on the bright side of life—
    Cheers.
