Default 06 vue 2.2 intake to brake booster hose connection

Good afternoon,

I may have a leak at the port where the brake booster hose connects to the intake. Not wanting to go in and barrel around like a drunk bear, can someone explain how to release the white clamp on the hose. Engine has 205k on the clock so I'm proceeding with care in case this port breaks easy. It's my daily driver so breaking the intake would suck!

All info and advise welcome.

Thank you

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Have you confirmed the leak by spraying starter fluid at the suspected leak?

I have not tried that. I want to do a visual inspection with the hose detached. Do you know how that clip releases?

Can you post a snapshot of this clamp up close? With a snapshot, someone may be able to suggest how to remove it.

The suggestion to use starting fluid (or any other fluid) sprayed onto a suspected leak in the vacuum hose and fittings is with the engine idling. Starting fluid is flammable and not advised but water will suffice. With an idling engine, any vacuum leak with water sprayed onto a leak will be ingested into the intake manifold. The idle will change immediately to indicate a vacuum leak exists. No change in idle rpm no matter how much water is sprayed would indicate zero vacuum leak. While applying a water spray, push/pull/tug on the vacuum line. Even a hairline crack will alter idle rpm as air and water are ingested into the intake manifold without causing harm.

Here is a picture of the brake booster hose as it connects to the intake. The white clamp is what I would like to know how to remove?release. For reference, the engine oil filter cap is on the left side of the picture.

Good idea on spraying with water. I have not tried this yet. It appears as thought i'm seeing some kind of leak at this location. Best I can do to discribe this is it looks like blow by that has collected at the bottom of the intake and started to seep out at this hose connection.

Default Re: 06 vue 2.2 intake to brake booster hose connection

I had mine off a couple years ago, I believe the white part is the lock.

I can't remember exactly how to release it.. try these:

1) push the connector in a little, then try to push the white part down to release the connector and pull the connector off.

2) Use a small blade and pry the white thing up.

Gotcha. I will give this a try tonight. With 205k on the clock, I have not had this hose off the car. Thank you and I'll report back how this went and what worked.

All went well last night. The white piece is a clip. Once you pull the rubber hose off, you can rotate the plastic piece 180 degrees and push the clip off. Then the plastic nipple slides off.

Thank you for your help!

I did verify that this is not the source of my leak. Let the searching continue.

Intake manifold o-rings... Take a look at this post. Scroll down to post #7

Before you get crazy about removing stuff, get a can of carb cleaner and spray around with the engine running to see if you can find the exact location of your leak.
