Hi all

I need to clean the vacuum lines goin to and from the "ignition" switch
on my 1982 300D. What is the best way to get to that valve: from below,
removing the cover or from above, by removing the instrument cluster?

Thanks in advance.

Nicolas

One good way to clean all of this system is to spray "brake clean " through the lines & the vacuum valve. W/key off disconnect brown & brown w/blue tracer vacuum lines(under hood) & spray brake clean through the lines. Should clean everything without disassembly.

After the brake clean I like to follow it with a light blow of air.

Thanks a lot.

I'll blow the brake cleaner. I wasn't sure how the valve would take it.

Thanks again.
