Need help, advice on a Vacuum leak. (photo inside)

So I noticed some hissing noise tonight around the rear drivers side wheel and crawled underneath and noticed this... You can see the rubber vacuum line is split.. And it's to short to cut and pull onto the Brass vacuum line.



Is it possible to just cut this and put and inline spice into it or am I going to have to redo the entire line which will most likely mean taking off the rear bumper? I'm hoping I can just add an inline connector something like these on the left. Will this work?

Yep! It would work with jubilee clips...but it would prey on your mind for ever more, so do it the correct way and renew the hose

+1. Agree. That rubber looks dry rotted. Rubber hose is cheap. Replace it all and be done with the repair.

+2. It is really worth spending the time to replace all of those lines. If one is split that means the rest either are already split or starting to.

Well after I changed out and fixed the hose I now have a Check Engine light that shows an Evaporative Emissions control leak. I didn't notice this light while the leak was happening just after I fixed it. Did I not do something right or is this not even related to what I fixed?
