87 300E glove box removal

I think my climate control diaphram(s) are bad as I get air flow with the system off. I want to remove the glove box and have pried up the push rivets and only broke one! The light assembly seems to be holding the box back. Does it pop off or is there a trick? I would hate to break this part. Thanks.

If it's like the 123 and 126 cars, it simply pops off with a gentle prying from a thin-bladed screwdriver. Then, you can twist it and tuck it up through the opening in the glove box and let it hang there until you have removed the box, done your business, and then replaced the box, pulling the light through the opening once again and pressing it into place. Good luck.

Which vac control line goes where?

A warm day today so I removed the box and pried out the light. There were no loose/broken vac control lines. They all join a manifold on the left side. The hoses are numbered 1-6 from top to bottom. I will pull a vacuum on each line to see where the leak is but which diaphram goes with which number? Is there a picture on the net?
Also -Just to be sure I should not have any airflow from the side vents with the AC on "O." Right? If airflow is ok I should not even be chasing this. Thanks.
