I need new vacuum lines and the rubbers that some of them slide into. Can't seem to find any on rockauto/ebay/anywhere. Where can I buy them?

Do you have auto parts store there that carry generic vacuum hose? I had to replace some of mine and that is where I got mine. Not sure where you can get the hard plastic connectors. Maybe someone on here could mail some used ones to you, postage shouldn't be too bad on something so light weight.

Sure I can buy some generic hoses but they are mostly standard for german vehicles like Mercedes and they are way too big in diameter for the Fiero. I guess I could adapt them to work but not sure how the different diameter would work with the whole vacuum system.

Ask in the mall.....somebody has a parts car and could strip all the vacuum stuff and send it to you for not much.

If you can find the rubber fittings, you can find some stainless tubing and bend up some better lines.

The cheap rubber fittings I've run across on the shelf at the local parts stores here are junk, they make it months before shrinking and cracking.

Thanks for the replies. I don't really want to buy used ones. In this case I would really prefer new lines. Bending some stainless lines won't be a problem but getting good rubber fittings... guess I'll have to experiment.

Fabricating a new set is doable but I just thought maybe there's a good kit that can be purchased as for example for the rest of the TBI (gasket set).

I think this is another case where the aftermarket parts are much worse than the original GM parts. I have seen vacuum elbows on junk Fieros that look brand new......and as JMBISHOP said, the stuff in the stores is not worth the time.
