Vacuum leak. Identifying rogue hose.

Recommended Posts

PoloMM

Firstly apologies for the new thread but it seems I'm unable to edit the original one and the subject line says "N/M. Sorted" so little chance of replies in there...

 

I asked yesterday about the little green cap as shown in the attached pic however I have since identified this at item 25 from the following diagram:

However, after further testing today I notice the air leak is actually coming from the other end of this hose which appears to be snapped off from somewhere.  Looking at the air filter diagram I see that this leads to the only part that isn't numbered. Grrrr! So I'm at a loss to identify where this belongs and where the other end is. Can I simply plug it up with another cap?  

 

TIA

Great, thanks for that.

 

Where can I find the other half of the hose though? Ideally I'd like to return it to how it should be.

What I meant was the other half of this hose is still attached somewhere.  I'd like to know where. Engine block, firewall, etc.

The half I can see I can follow along but it's not that half I'm interested in.  The missing half is missing so I can't follow it along until I find it, hence my question. Where should I look for it?

Any thoughts? I don't think I'm asking a daft question...
