Good Day Sir, I have a Fiat X19 with UNO Turbo Motor, the car used to have a brake booster that was fitted in the Front Boot area, There was a long vacuum pipe that came from the engine at the rear off car to brake booster at front.
I now disconnected the brake booster as the front braking disc system were modified.
What do I do with the vacuum hose.
Should I block it?
Or should I attach a small breather filter at end off long pipe in front boot compartment.

Please help
God Bless

Yes, of course you cannot allow it to have a vacuum leak. You might be able to remove the pipe and block it at it's source to make a neater job.

Thank you O so much.
Just a quick 1. We're the vacuum hose begins on engine it had a one way valve which sucked air into engine and not blow out to booster.
Is that the way it should be fitted?
