Ive had to replace the aircon control panel and the tape that numbers the tubes is gone. I pulled it out in haste and because its so tight in there i dont remember which goes where. Can anyone help? I need to match the tubes to the right holes....

yah they have numbers on tags that are stuck on, but after time they come off,
if you can, go 2 a wreakers with a pen and write down what gose to where, its the only logical way i can think beside paying some1 to do it

Since everybody wants to know this here it is ;)

Number three (3) Goes into the recirculation valve right near the blower fan.

Number four (4) Goes through the firewall and connects to the engine (Vac supply)

Number five (5) Goes to a small one way valve (White and black round thing) on the drivers side near the firewall and disapears behind the heater box.

Number eight (8) goes to a actuator near the steering coloum with a rod and a lever on it, its close to the front of the dash and i think the lever pushes down.

Number nine (9) goes to a actuator behind the ciggie lighter area.

Everything else has a rubber blocking teet on it, all up i think there was four.

Ill put this in technical for future reference by others too.....

Yeah "VL Berlina 5 speed" has the right idea but the problem is you cant really tell without pulling the entire dash off where each tube goes to. "Mags" right too, they have numbered tags on them but they fall of and then ur screwed. How much did they charge you to fix it "gungazza"? Thanks heaps for your help fellas. Im a new forum member and you guys have some good info to help out beginners. Keep it up cheers
