    Default Vacuum reservoir problem

    Have been changing the intake manifold on my vectra 1.9 cdti and when taking the vacuum hoses off the vacuum reservoir one of the small pipes broke off, there is another blanked pipe next to it, what would happen if I blank the broken one off and connect to the other one, (garage say they can only get one from germany and it will take 17 days)

    Any Ideas?

    i believe it would work just fine. The later cars didn't have the vac reservoir and the pipe ran direct from the vac pump to the boost control valve on the front panel.

    Works fine without it, I broke one of the pipe fittigs off my tank, went to VX to get another one, and was told to just bin it, as the later cars don't have them anyway, used a length of silicon hose to go bypass the tank, and have had no problems since. (until the cambelt split and caused the timing to jump)

    it's easy, just take a vac pipe direct from the vacuum pump on the top right of the engine, the thin pipe, to the boost valve on the slam panel and secure it from flopping round with cable ties. Then leave the reservoir and pipes in place on the engine, no need to remove those.

    Thanks Barney, and the pipe that leads to the tank remains with no hose on the vacuum pump side. Should this be sealed off ?

    no need to seal either end of the metal pipes leading to the vac reservoir, as it is no longer in use.
