View Full Version : Front right UIM vacuum line.

Where does the small vacuum hose coming off from the front right of the UIM go? Mine snapped, I think I can tape it for a temporary fix to get a new hose. I can't tell where it goes because it goes into the bundle with the wiring near the throttle body. Quick help is appreciated.

i think its the vacuum line to control the hvac controls, but dont quote me. Wait for someone else to verify.

It's a PITA to trace since it's hidden with all that wiring. I wanna replace it with polyethylene hose so it won't break again, it was extremely brittle. I guess on that note, if someone knows the size too, that'd be good to know.

mine snapped before as well, so i just went to a local auto parts store and bought a steel braided vac hose and used it to reconnect the broken line.

What size hose? Also what did you use to connect the two lines together? Thanks.
