    Need some help. On the intake manifold of a 04. Driver side behind the TB there is a hose that connects to a barb in the manifold. There is a connector there that I can not figure out. I’ve basically broke it as far as I know by pulling up on the white plastic tab and braking it off.
    How does this thing come the hell off.

    The hose itself is a molded hose in the shape of an S and is extremely brittle. It is labeled that it’s fuel rated.

    clearly doesn’t carry fuel since it could only have air under a vacuum since it’s connected directly to the intake manifold.

    fuel vapor line??? I can’t find anything about a replacement for it. Or how the clip on where it attaches to the intake.

    Mines rotted out. (Now that I know what this is).

    guess I’ll replace it with something with similar ratings.
