How to remove air door?!


So I recently removed the air door and I forgot about the air line which hizzes out air when I turn on the bus. How do I close the line?

Cap it off with a common brass fitting.

*Quick hack* fold the plastic line in half and secure with tape, rubber band, etc. This is not a long term or approved fix; it is intended to get you out of a jam.

If it's all copper tubing like mine...

You can cap it off with a brass coupling and cap
Or cut it, crimp it, and braze the end closed.

Trace it back to source pull the line and fitting then buy a plug to fit the hole in the valve - permanent fix
