Houston, we have a problem. If the vacuum line was detached from the intake manifold, and not the air filter housing it is not accessible from the engine bay as near as I was able to determine. If runs between two of the intake runners on the passenger side intake manifold of the engine. I could not reach the attached point as the space is too narrow for may hands and my fingers weren't near long enough. I could not see the attachment point either as the power steering reservoir is in the way. Would suggest a visit to the dealer or your favorite repair shop is in order. Might be a simple fix but I can not tell by looking at my engine. As it was from the intake side you can't even plug the vacuum leak so probably would be prudent to get it look after.
