Vac line help, please?

Postby RobsZRinAR » Fri Mar 06, 2015 12:06 pm

I remember seeing this Q here but, not remembering the details, the Search got me nowhere...
I'm replacing dry-rotted vac lines this morning. Coming from behind the throttle body, to drivers side, is a 7/32" hose that runs above & between the brake fluid rsvr and master cyl, to a 'T'. One line runs downward from there at 270 degrees and another, about 8" long, takes off at 180 degrees. I seem to recall that it goes somewhere into the fender but, for the life of me, can't find where I accidentally unplugged it from. Even with a 4 D Cell Maglite! :oops:
Can someone point me in the right direction?

Thx, Rob

I believe that line goes to a vacuum canister that is between the inner and outer of the front fender. Here is a link that might help you out and it has pics. It might be a hard vacuum line to get back on.

About 3/4 of the page down is the pics of the vacuum lines next to the abs

Feel around for the nipple just under the edge of the inner fender. You won't see it but you can feel it :)

HJ - I much prefer feeling for nipples under the edge of a blanket but, I'll try again. :D
Is this hole/nipple to the rear of the fuse block? Is the hole just big enough for the line??

LMs10 - thx for the link with pics but, I still can not find where it escaped from!

:shock: PG-13 , PG-13! (j/k) :lol:I thought it was protruded , not recessed. a mirror might help see under there, but I am sure trying to look will never work.

After taking half of the junk off of the inside of the fender, I found it! :roll:

Thx for the help, all! :thumb:
