Hi all. Can anyone help me with the location of the vacuum hoses behind the dash on my 1998 1.6 8v arctic. I had to remove the dash to resolve a leak and cant remember what way the hoses go back on. There is a black with green tracer and a black with red tracer and the green tracer pipe has a t-piece in it to go somewhere else. I would be very grateful for any help ( pics would be great too if possible). Thanks.

two of the pipe go on the recirculation switch, i don't think it matter too much which side of the switch, but worth checking it works with the engine running.

I believe cause urs has AC the other bit of the pipe go onto the heater control for windscreen or something so it recircs or someting, but i can't exactly remember

Servo vac feed goes up through the scuttle overflow.

This then feeds the vac box next to pollen filter under the scuttle.

Black/green vac pipe goes through the top feed...

... then enters the car inside here and is still black/green vac pipe & goes directly to the air recirculation switch on the l/h side but suspect left or right doesn't matter.

Other side of air recirculation switch is solid black vac pipe & goes directly to air recirc valve located on front of HVAC assembly on l/h side.

AC model vac operated coolant feed pipe enters cabin behind brake servo for UK rhd.

It then goes from black plastic pipe to the black/red rubber pipe.

Black/red pipe goes the rear of the heater control knob.

Then there is a black rubber pipe that comes from the rear r/h side of the heater control knob that T's into the solid black pipe that goes from air recirculation switch to air recirc valve. It T's in near the heater knob but no pic as I couldn't pull the centre panel out enough to get pics.

Yes, I took most of the car apart to get the pics lol. Any further questions drop me a PM ;)
