Did some small fixes to the car on last weekend:

BMW uses harness cable clips which are merely taped onto the hoses/cables. Several years later the engine bay heat means the tape falls apart and you get lose cables in the engine bay. The washer hose and cables had popped off the bonnet cable clip and started rubbing, which wore through the tape insulation and exposed the wires. Just taped it up with electrical tape, taped it back onto the cable clip and used a few zipties to help it stay on.

I was also getting a small pool of washer fluid on the ground, so removed the wheel liner and found the feed hose to the washer bottle would leak when I wiggled the hose. Had an o-ring kit from ALDI which was slightly thicker so sealed very well. Messy job, real pain in the ass trying to figure out where its leaking.
