Default Can you tell me which way this part goes?



I removed this from my 2003's a/c vacuum line when I replaced the heater core last week, but I couldn't remember which direction it goes back in. Does the fatter end (looks like a cap) point up and towards the firewall and connect to the hose coming from the cabin or down towards the engine and connect to the hose connection there?

Thanks.

I'm not sure, but it seems to me that as long as you're reusing the vacuum hose you took off, you should be able to look at the hose and tell the difference. The piece that pushes into the fatter part should be a darker color on the OUTSIDE as it shoves into the connection. The other end should be darker on the INSIDE because it fits over the small connector. That's all I can think of.

Ah! Thank you very much. I did indeed put it in backwards.

50/50 chance. I did that with my sway bar the other day and wondered why the bolts wouldn't like up straight! LMAO
