Hard to really understand exactly which hoses you're referring to. Perhaps use Google Translate for English? A picture would really help too!

There are hoses that go to the charcoal canister that is 'hidden' in a 'secret compartment' in the right front fender well, behind the right front wheel. There are two sizes of hoses here, so perhaps that's what you're asking about? I'll try to attach a pic

Cool! So I'm not sure, but I think all three of them go to that canister. You can find the ends of these hoses behind a removable plate behind the right front wheel, pic below. You might have to drill out rivets if it's never been removed. Reattach with self tapping sheet metal screws. Good idea to clean out this compartment from time to time, as well as the same one on the other wheel (which is empty).

Ha! So I wasn't reading very carefully - sorry about that! I can't look at my car right now - it's raining and car is outside under cover.

The first image I sent shows the large one clearly going to the ribbed rubber air hose. Ok on that one?

The problem is there are two small ones, so which to connect where?

One of them for sure goes to the second vacuum connection on the front right of the cast aluminum air plenum.

But where does the other small one go?

Anyone here know:
1. Where that second small hose is connected?
2. How to know which small hose is which?

This might help.


Look at the picture on post #10 by VaiVeloce. It shows that those three hoses each have their own hole in the fender. I would guess that the small hose at the back is the one that does not connect to the engine, but goes behind the firewall, as is described in other posts on that thread.

The second small one connects to the vent line coming forward from the fuel tank.

K, special treat, I got all bundled up, went out in -19 to get some pictures for you. My little line back to the tank tucks under the coil bracket the heads down by the header before heading aft through the firewall blanket.

Domo75 - is your question:

It's not clear what you're asking. I think you've said that there are 3 hoses going into the fender. RIght? Which hoses in your are car NOT connected and you need help with?

We've described where one of the small and one of the large hoses go to. The other small hose (the one going into the fender closer to the BACK of the car, will go 'behind' the engine and will go to the vapor recovery system at the back of the car. I've marked up VintageMilano's pic to show this hose. It's the white line.

But are you asking - which hoses connect to which parts of the carbon canister???

So we're getting close to the ACTUAL question :).

See the attached diagram. Hose 11 is what we're talking about. Ok, this is not a GTV6, but it's the same system, works the same way. Does this help?

I do not know where that hose attaches at the back of the car, near the fuel tank itself. But on your car, there should be a small rubber perhaps fabric covered) hose going from somewhere back there, to the engine compartment, and finally to the carbon canister. That's hose 11. The other fuel hoses (positive pressure feed to engine, and return of excess fuel to tank) are, I believe, steel.
