Vent Vaccum hoses on '03 Windstar

\015 Hey michigan man. Thanks for the advice on checking the vent vaccum hoses. The hoses looked okay behind the control unit. I then followed 1 orange and 1 black hose going behind the glove compartment and then I think they go to the engine area. I looked under the hood and found a vaccum line with a T splitter. 1 red hose went to the engine area. 1 black went to the inside of the van. The 3rd opening was open. Is that orange hose suppose to connect to that or does it go somewhere else? If it is suppose to, then how do I get it to the engine area? I tried to see of the orange one was loose on the inside, but it didn't really pull back at all. Do you have any ideas? Thanks in advance.\015\012\015\012yorte21\015\012\015\012(p.s. sorry for the wrong category thing....it wouldn't let me choose past Ford)\015
