There may be a couple of black hoses. The hose coming in through the firewall goes to a 4 way connector on the front of the airbox. There is one between the 4 way incoming connector, and the vacuum tank on the top of the AC unit. There may be another to a vacuum motor, or more than one vacuum motor.

i couldnt get a pic but the black hose i am talking about there is only 1 and it comes through the firewall it is a hard plastic hose and has a coupler that transfers it to a soft rubber hose with a right angle coupler but i dont see what it is suppose to connect to... i can see all the other hoses that go to the climate controls...

The "nozzle" may be a broken part. Look at the hard plastic parts to see if there is anything broken. It should hook to a 4 way manifold on the front of the AC box,

Okay. You owe me. It's 12 degrees in my garage, but to help you out I un-assembled part of my dash and then pulled my 'spare' HVAC cluster down off a rack to take this labled photo. The 'hard black tube from the firewall' is labeled, and my finger is pointing to where it connects (next to the pink tube). The pic is taken looking at the HVAC box the way it sits in the car, from the back seat.

It's 20 degrees colder than a witch'es tit in my garage, but here's a suggestion (along with a strong flashlight) to save you ripping your dash apart:



I bought all the cheap-ass yellow handled ones at HF 10 year ago for like $20. Probably paid for themselves oh 'bout 50 times since then.
