English term or phrase: wading plug
Part of SUV. Not much of a context.
It seems very particular to Land Rover vehicules.
Thanks to all

bouchon d'étanchéité (de la cloche d'embrayage)
Explanation:
pour traverser des rivières/passages à gué

Avant de démonter l'ancienne courroie, j'ai placé une mèche de 9,5mm pour bloquer la pompe (au départ j'avais mis une mèche de 9mm, voir ci-dessous "derniers développements") et une mèche de 5mm pour bloquer le volant moteur (passée à travers un bouchon, utilisé pour obturer la cloche d'embrayage quand on passe des gués, que j'ai percé à cet effet) et j'ai vérifié que les repères d'alignement coïncident.


On Land Rover vehicles, fit the clutch bell housing wading plug and, where supplied, the camshaft drive belt housing wading plug. These plug the holes that drain any leaking oil to prevent it getting onto the camshaft timing belt or clutch-driven plate. They should be removed after wading - not necessarily immediately, but within a few days. For regular wading, leave these plugs fitted; but remove them weekly, allow any oil to drain out, and then replace them.

drain plug would be bouchon de vidange, pour vider l\'huile ou un autre fluide

ici c\'est pour empêcher l\'eau d\'entrer
