I don't know if this belongs in the Care and Feeding Section or this section, but I think it will get more responses here...

I have a cracked hard plastic vaccuum line and need to know how to repair it. It is one of the lines that runs along the back of the firewall. The crack is not very big... maybe 1/4 to a 1/2 inch.

How do I fix it?

Thanks

Get a length of rubber vacuum hose with an ID (interior diameter) corresponding to the outside diameter (OD) of the line. Cut out the break and connect the 2 ends with the rubber hose and clamps.

Great, ok thanks. I thought of that earlier, but had a concern because the line is located against the firewall right behind a turbocharger. I didn't know if the heat would cause problems.

Thanks alot.

Vacuum line is made to stand up to underhood temps. You will see it routed everywhere in the engine compartment.

Piece of copper tubing would work, too (if you can get right size). Try feed lines for a sink. Easier to insert into other hose than plastic.
