Default Re: What sensor is this

My two cents. If the plastic piece broke with one part still in the hose fitting, can that broken piece be removed? Once removed, perhaps a metal bushing or tube fitting the inside diameter and epoxied to the manifold can act as a structural support. The metal tube fitting into manifold and broken piece. This shouldn't affect vacuum operation. If a tube can fit snugly before epoxy, this trial fit may work to erase the P0449 error code. If it does, epoxy the piece permanently.

Is the hose a nylon tube with snap on fittings? Care is needed if these are plastic fittings. Aging dries out plastics, prone to cracking. Thermoplastics are supposed to be resilient to heat/cold cycles.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
