Default Turbo solenoid vacuum tube..

Hi guys

The yellow vacuum tube attached to the turbo solenoid valve on my 1.8t has broken. I'm looking to replace it with some 3mm silicone hose and wondered the best way to attach it to the solenoid and the turbo at the other end, does it just shove on?

Many thanks

I wouldn't advocate the use of silicone hoses on the turbo control pipework , they have been known to cause problems and stop the turbo from boosting I would replace with hard wall plastic pipe as fitted standard
