Untold years spent as yard art waiting for LeMons glory has a tendancy to rot the freaking hell out of degrade the brake and clutch systems of any car. During the hibernation, Pujo! developed a thirst for brake fluid. Unfortunately, no one could find where the fluid was going. Chief Hydraulic Monkey Scott attacked the problem with tearful resignation spunky optimism. While poking and prodding around the dashboard's nether regions, he dropped a nut and heard a hydraulic fluid-ey "Sploosh".
I think I found the missing brake fluid

A torturously long brief bit of wrenching produced an oozing Rube Goldberg-inspired brake and clutch hydraulic system.
Now what?

The fine folks at Peugeot have devised a way to tell any mechanic in the world to regardez the documentation before tearing into a mystery sphere.
Lire la putain de manuel!

Fortunately, we will be able to reuse the truffles fasteners that hold the brake and clutch systems to the rest of the car.
Did those come out of the ground?

You really captured the WTF?-ness of the project in the second picture, Bret. Scott and I look like we're ready to go out back and shoot ourselves.

Nice work! :-)

Pujo kicked my ass. Pujo is a bad kitty.

The funniest thing about the Mystery Sphere is that the "Read the Manual" hieroglyphic is on the back side of the sphere and can't be seen while it's in the car.

French engineers are just mean.
