Hi, I've had the "stuck on defrost" problem for a while and I figure it's about time to fix it. I was checking out my vacuum hoses and found some interesting stuff. I have a 98 2.5L. Here's some pictures of what I'm looking at.
Ignore the dates on the photos lol...been meaning to change that. The hoses are as follows:
RED ARROWS: Runs from black plastic sphere near passenger's side headlight and disappears under A/C unit.
GREEN ARROWS: Runs from black plastic sphere and terminates in a burnt up mess of plastic where the green circle is; looks like the circled/burnt thing used to be a connector.
BLUE ARROWS: Runs into a wire loom type thing and appears to go back along the valve cover towards the firewall.
My first instinct is the black hose marked with green arrows should connect to the red hose marked with the blue arrows. I could be very wrong and just wanted to make sure before I do something stupid lol.
Any help is greatly appreciated. If more pictures are needed just let me know.
