Center Console Vacuum Lock Inoperative ('91 SL)
In my '91 500SL, all of the interior compartments (sunglass storage, tape/cassette storage, door pockets, rear storage bins) vacuum lock correctly when I use the key to turn the lock by the center vents. The only compartment that doesn't lock is the center console. I've had the center console out, disconnected the black vacuum hose from it, and could not feel any vacuum pressure at the hose's yellow connector while turning the vacuum lock on and off.
My question is, where does this black rubber vacuum hose lead to, as I'm thinking that either the tube is cracked somewhere along the way, or the other end isn't connected?
Any info. or experience in dealing with this problem would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
