What do I need to replace to repair a vacuum leak in the windshield wiper switch? For now I disconnected the vacuum line to the manifold so the car would run right.

Blayton.....I believe the vacuum on the switch only controls the washer system, not the wiper......The cable controls the wiper motor - vacuum or electric.

I'm lost

What happened is that the car started running bad and I noticed that it was sucking a vacuum from the center of the windshield wiper switch I traced it to the intake manifold. I plugged the line at the manifold and the car runs great. if it only controls the washer I can live without it.

Do your wipers still work? Do you have an electric or vacuum motor?
