If anyone has there dash removed, there is a
black vacuum line that runs beside the heater
core box, its the only vacuum line beside the
heatercore box coming out of the firewall in this location, if someone
could tell me where this line runs it would be a
big help.

it's a drain so when your heater core goes out, the coolant goes outside of the car instead of inside the car. However, even when the heatercore does go out, coolant still ends up inside the car.

im not sure about a sucking noise but, you have that black plastic box covering your heater core rite? and that black box has a peice coming off that looks like a hose would hook up to it but it just goes into a hole in your fire wall then thats it rite?

That the vac line from your motor. Take you top dash pan off. You will see a round plastic piece that the orange vac line runs to. Plug that into the big nipple.

okay, I thought you were talking about somthing els. as far as removing your top dash, it isn't hard at all. once you pull the 6 or 7 7mm bolts you have to remove your 2 a pillars than the top of your dash will slid rite out.

Persistant are we :). I hope the picture below helps you. Sorry it is a little blurry but the picture was much bigger and I had to crop it.



Let me know if you need anything else.
