190e 2.6 Auto Vacuum Hose Replacement
I need some advice as to what I need to do to be able to replace the vacuum hose that apparently goes from the Idel Control Valve to the intake manifold.
I attached a picture so hopefully that works, that is the first time I did this. It also seems that it has another attachment for another hose, can anyone tell me where that goes? I replaced all the other ones and I am sure this one is in the same condition dry and brittle, although it seems intact now.
I looks to me like (I obviosly have to take off the air cleaner) I might need to take off the fuel distributor? I think that is the correct name where the metal lines go from it to the manifold?
I read that there is a gasket under that. So do I need to remove that or anything else to get to the other end of it? The end that attaches to the ICV is easy of course, but I can't see where the other end goes and I definitely can't reach it. So any danger to remove the fuel distributor? mentioned above, anything to watch out for?
Pictures would be very helpful thanks.
