My brake boost vacuum hose fitting is broke...

Recommended Posts

I was changing out my DVs and while putting the car together I accidently bumped the brake booster vacuum hose fitting release latch (black plastic sleeve shown below behing metal vacuum fitting) and the black release latch that fits into the white plastic fitting broke. I have spent hours looking into if this quick release connection was available by itself and it is not. It appears as though I can only purchase the whole 10' vacuum line(PN: 996-355-575-51) that runs from the engine compartment to the brake booster. The part I need is literally the size of a dinnermint and snaps right into the white disconnect receptical, which is okay minus the missing sliding black lock release. I am currently checking with LA Porsche to see if they have any of these line laying around. The line does even need to be in serviceable condition as I am just going to steal the black portion shown below anyways.Any advise would be appreciated. Also, the Boxster uses a similar disconnect but the hose is different.

HAs anyone been down this road or know what I could do? Thanks.
