where does this grey hose go? non AC 88 Gran Fury

i'm sure many of you have had to fix the HVAC hoses. i've gotten it except for one thing. where does the grey hose go? from the schematics it clearly doesn't go to the bushel the others go to but it still clearly has a crumbled piece of plastic on it. video i watched said something about a "vacuum check valve" where is that?

single M body beauty ring.

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on single M body beauty ring.
i've looked around but i can't seem to find just the right ring. i have a set of 3 but i can't find a fitting or similar looking beauty ring for my car. Others are either to expensive, don't fit or are to cheap/plastic. if anyone has a beauty ring made specifically for the Diplomat/Aspen police model hit me up.
