Whatever you want to put it on. Probably something round.

How do these "function"? LOL They are purely cosmetic. They are basically the wrist bands worn in like the 80s. A buddy of mine in the Army sent me a few and I used them as reservoir covers.

Yes you are correct. No reservoir on a cable trans.

The only place I can see would be on the windshield washer fluid reservoir.

Also, the brake system sees a **** ton of pressure when you apply the brakes. If there was a leak in the reservoir, a sock wouldn't help. lol

I believe that is your windshield wiper motor. You can put a sock on that I guess. It really doesn't matter where you put them. It isn't going to change anything but appearance.
