how to disconnect brake vacuum line in front wheel housing?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I searched but couldn't find the required info so here goes: How do I disconnect the brake booster vacuum line from the alloy connection block in the front wheel housing (frunk sidewall to which the brake lines brake booster/servo connects)? I want to disconnect the vacuum line on the wheel housing side.

I noticed that I can pull back what seems to be a locking ring but the line won't release/disconnect from the connection block.

The model concerned is a MY1999 manual carrera2, LHD.

A photo would be useful, but it sounds like a line connection that requires a release tool.

Any hints on how to remove the black corrugated tubing from the alloy connection block highlighted by the bold green rectangle?

Most of the connectors are "pinch and pull", although sometimes it takes more strength than you have in your hands to pinch the connector.  You have to really pinch the release surround while also pulling to disconnect.  Just from experience....
