I am trying to replace the vacuum check valve for the brake booster. I am having trouble locating the valve itself but from what I have researched it may be built into the vacuum line. However, the part I got from Hyundai is a fairly standard three way check valve with some rubber elbows on it? I cannot see anyplace where it my go so I assume I just got an incorrect part and have to order a new hose. There appears to be a union of some kind at a mount on the back of the plenum before the line goes into the manifold itself. This is what I assumed was the check valves location at first glance. Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Replacing the vacuum brake booster isn't too hard. The most difficult is getting under the dash to unbolt it. There isn't a lot of room.

Regardless, here are the directions for replacement. The attached pictures correlate with the directions.
