    P0457 and the blue connector.

    OK, I know what P0457 means, and most of the causes. BUT, while I was checking out my EVAP hoses I found out that the blue connector has a fitting on the bottom that has a screw in it. Where does this line go? It's the fitting that faces straight down, not front or rear. Looks like 1/8", maybe 3/16".
    The car has a Perrin turbo inlet on it. I do not see any hoses that should be connected to anything. All I need is a location as to where it goes.

    Anyone?

    It's a blue vacuum connector to the left of the alternator. The connector is to the right of the turbo inlet, near the alternator cover. It's the only blue vacuum connector in that area. I'll snap a pic tomorrow.
