Hi Ken. Thanks for contacting us tonight. It would be very difficult to try and document where the vacuum line attaches without images or video to show you. Since we can’t attach documents to this platform, your best option is to purchase a service and repair manual for your vehicle, which will have diagrams in the manual and will show you the location of each vacuum line.
