    Thread: Broken Hose Under Intake

    1. 03-27-2012 03:38 PM #1
      Hello,

      I changed the spark plugs in my 2000 Jetta and when I did, I broke a hose underneath the top portion of the manifold. I didn't know that when I lifted it up, it would torque on this piece so badly... live and learn I guess. It's a black hard plastic, and the only numbers I can get off of it are PA 66GF30, which is the material that it is made out of, not the part number.

      Here are links to the photos on my google account:

      I've completely removed the part in the meantime, I just can't find out the name so I can replace it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

      Looks like a vac line of some type, definitely doesnt look like fuel or coolant, so you should be able to just replace it with a hose of similar diameter from the auto parts store.

      My only concern is that it's molded plastic and sits on top of the engine... doesn't that mean it's a high temp one and would require a specialty one?

      If it is anything like my 1.8T, the parts department at the dealer probably knows the part if it breaks a lot. (Which I am guessing that you are not the first to break this when changing the plugs.

      Like others have stated, I would just replace it with vacuum line.

      On each end of the plastic hose, there are plastic splitters and where they connect it pivots, but I can't pull them apart. Should I just break the plastic to extract and salvage the connection pieces/splitters?

      At that point I would talk to the dealer, find the part and see how much it is before breaking it. They might be able to show you how it goes together too. I know some of those stupid plastic parts can be pricy.
