Volvo 850 TCV to Turbo vaccumm hoses lines diagram

The vacuum hoses for the TCV are the first cause of failure when you have boost issues, both lacking boost and overboost.

When replacing the hoses make sure to re-connect them like in the diagram above.

The green hose goes to the nipple on the turbocharger cold side.

The yellow hose to the turbo wastegate.

The blue hose goes to the inlet hose, right after the MAF.

The TCV itself is attached to the air filter housing.
