Vacuum lines 190D

Post by Don » Sat 22 Oct, 2016 5:58 pm

I just picked up a very nice little 190D and it blows hot air on the passenger side but cold on the drivers side. The green and orange vacuum line from the right hand temperature dial is disconnected under the bonnet for some reason and I can't see where it should connect to. It seems too long to plug onto the yellow valve where someone has blanked one pipe off.

If anybody with a 190D could help out with advice or better yet, a pic of where both the green line and the blanked off bit should go it would be much appreciated.

Okay, looking at some pics of US cars that green line should go where the brown coloured blank is on the yellow valve.

Some pics of that valve on a local car would still be great!

It could be that the vacuum actuator on that side is leaking, and the PO just disconnected that actuator and blocked the vacuum port it should connect to.

Thanks! On further examination I discovered the right hand temperature dial has no resistance whilst turning whereas the left one actually feels like it's doing something. Be good if it was just the dial.
