There is a rigid white vacuum line connection on the right hand side (as you face face the engine under the hood) of the transmission casing. This line makes it way up between the air feed pipes of cylinders 3 and 4 on the intake manifod. It is connected to a rubber right-angle connector fitted on nipple on the top of air pipe for cylinder 3 just beneath the fuel rail and about 30mm from the injector

it is a vacum line to the heater that is either plugged or not connected look under the dash you or a passenger may hav hit it with your foot. after look ing at all the connections, if it still per sists, try using a vacume tester on all the hoses if all have proper vacum levels then you need to replace an actuator(the things the hoses plug into on the heater box.

2002 Land Rover ~ Freelander - No heat coming from the heater

Look for two water lines about 1 in in diameter running back toward the condensor unit in the firewall. On one of those lines will be a control. It is sometimes vacum controlled. When they are vacum conrolled they have a tendency to get stuck or you may have lost vacum to the unit. You can use a vacum tester and short piece of hose to test this to see if you have lost vacum or if it is stuck closed. Connect the test hose to the control on teh hose and apply vacum to the unit. If the valve opens you will get heat in the vehicle. If it does not open then it is stuck in the closed position and will need to be replaced in most cases.
