Vacuum System Repair

I found a couple of vac lines on my 2004 3.2V6 needed replacing...and that was all good until I got to removing lines on the LHS of the engine and the brittle plastic pipes fell apart. I now am at a bit of a loss as to what goes where. Could some kindly person that has a manual post the diagrams relating to that?

Hi, I had a similar problem but mine didn't totally fall apart. The stealership wanted close to $1,000.00 for the assembly. Mine were basically all cracked at the end (the plastic pipes). I ended up cutting off the cracked end just past the crack, inserted some line connectors between the hard plastic vacuum lines and whatever they connected to, and then taped it all up with plumber's tape (total cost less than $30.00). I did this about five months ago and it's still holding. If you find a better solution, please let me know. I do know that you can't replace the existing vacuum hose with a soft-type of vacuum hosing as the vacuum is too strong. It would collapse the hose (or that's what I've been told). I hope this helps.
