    Default Where does this hose go? (Vacuum line)

    Hi,

    I had my jeep in the shop for some body work. They didn't connect a vacuum line back. Only the defrost works.

    I can't find where it goes? Here is a photo.


    Also I can't find where the electrical connector goes.
    It comes out of the firewall here:


    Thanks!

    I had that vacuum line pop off of my TJ once, look in the owners manual or on the inside of the hood and there should be a diagram of the vacuum lines shows where it goes. Its just below the throttle body if its the one I am thinking of.

    Okay but that is the line that controls the blend door. Possibly why you only have defrost.

    Why not take it back and insist they finish the job.

    I can't tell you why your defrost doesn't work, but the hose and electrical connector go to your windshield washer reservior and pump.

    I was going to say - follow the arc, the hose and connector will only reach so many places.

    Thanks guys, you're right, it's for my hardtop squirter.

    Stupid body shop, if I hadn't moved I'd tear them a new one. They forgot to reinstall my vacuum reservoir, hence my problems.

    Quick question, on a TJ with a hard top, does anyone have a photo of the connector on the windshield washer reservoir? I'm guessing it should have two places to hook up a line and an electrical connector like the one I pictured above.

    How hard is the vacuum hose to replace for someone with no automotive skills, other than changing batteries and other minor repairs.

    My selector is not switching between zones and it looks like the vac hose has rotted out. Should i just wrap it in duct tape or can I pull it out and replace it easily? Also, anyone have a part name/number for the vac line?

    btw it's a 2002 TJ with AC if that matters.

    it's just a hose man....
    If you don't have any mechanical skills you have 3 choices:
    1. get some skills
    2. make ALOT of money for your mechanic (I'll be your mechanic)
    3. get a honda.

    btw,, i'm kidding... SORTA
