On my front heat only van the 2 hoses run from the water pump and front of intake to the heater core. You should be able to just remove all of it and just run the 2 hoses like that if you want the simplest setup. You can also loop the rear lines and not mess with anything else. Leeann_93 has some good pictures around here somewhere showing how to do that. I don't have it handy though.

Also, if you click the "Img" tag above the reply box and copy paste that link address for that picture you wouldn't of had to attach it. I find it easier that way.

Technically you could bypass enough to get rid of everything except the vacuum source to the firewall pass-through.

That would still be needed to control the vents, and the vacuum storage ball is worth keeping, otherwise the vents can lose vacuum under certain situations(think long steep hills).

Trolls take away from productive work, best to ignore & go about your business. See: Dark Tetrad
