Hi Everyone
Does anyone have a full schematic of the vacuum system? Having issues as the central locking and heater doesn't work. Pump does work and has suction so it must be leaking from somewhere. Also if i need some parts to repair as in T pieces and vacuum hose where can I get some quality German replacements. Would prefer to put Febi Bilstein or something along those lines.
Thanks Guys!

For Tees, Crosses and joiners, use the reticulation drip hose fittings. They fit the vacuum hoses for W123 fine, possibly for the W201 also.

And reticulation hose will work great too as vacuum or windscreen washer hose - extremely UV stable and very flexible, good wall thickness and cheap

Just remember, not to use polythene pipe, the rubbery hose. Polythene is not stable under the bonnet.
