I just picked up a pretty sweet 86 cabriolet for a song ,but I have a few questions hopefully you guys can answer. The first is where does the vacuum canister hook up to? mine was just laying in the car. second is there supposed to be a hole in the top of the air box between the gas distribution spider and the air intake. third what is supposed to hook to the nipple on the air box tube. Forth can someone send me a picture of the area where the fuel pump is under the car mine is kinda a mess of zip ties. Thank you everyone for your help in advance. A flat head screwdriver points to my issues. loose vacuum canister
nipple of side of airbox
hole in airbox

Ok I tried to post this yesterday but for some reason it did not post. I just bought an 86 cabriolet. I have. few questions. Is there a way to pull engine codes? Is there supposed be a hole in the air box lid between the air output and the fuel distribution block. and what is supposed to go on the extra nipple on the hose coming put the side of the air box. Also can anyone send me a picture of the area where the fuel pump is under the car mine is a mess of zip ties and bailing wire. thanks in advance for any help. This is my first vw and it's a real head scratcher.
