What vacuum line controls headrests on 92 300D?

Got 92 300D back from indie after gas-in-tank fiasco. Somehow the vacuum system got disturbed, but I don't notice any disconnected lines. The symptoms are a mild transmission bump under certain circumstances and the rear headrests won't go down.

Does anyone know which vacuum line goes to the rear headrests? I figure that if I can identify it I should be able to figure it out.

Thanks.

if you look behind the brake booster you will see a few vacuum lines, the white one is for the headrests and leads to the vacuum valve under the rear seat that directs vacuum to the pods that pull the headrest locks which makes them fall.

D'oh! After inspecting and replacing hoses on the DRIVER side, I noticed a disconnected hose over on the PASSENGER side. Further proof that passenger side vacuum is evil and must be eliminated!

That is one hose I don't have on my 300TD, no headrest dropper on a wagon...

I did the evil right side hose delete on mine.
