Default Vacuum booster pump.

I know the vacuum booster pump "helps" the vacuum operated accesories, but I don't know how it is correctly integrated in the system. The "in" line to the booster pump comes from the intake manifold. Where does the "out" line go? I had been planning on sending it straight to the wipers but some reading in the manual has me second-guessing.

who will put it in good shape, quickly and for little money compared to an electric replacement. Also spend some time making sure the rest of the system has no leaks in it.

Default RE: Vacuum booster pump.

It's a somewhat complicated routing setup as you need to have vacuum going to the wiper motor, from the wiper motor to the washer switch, from the switch to the washer pump, and I think back to the switch (I'm not really sure on the correct routing tho). I have a diagram around here somewhere but haven't been able to locate it.

I'll look again later. Maybe Alex has one handy?

I don't have a washer on my car, though it looks like the nozzles are there. No evidence of the switch or the components that attach to the wiper motor.

I'm just trying to figure out whether the vacuum line from the fuel pump is supposed to go straight from the pump to the wiper motor or someplace else.

The below photo from this website's tech area should help you hook up your wiper motor.
