The rubber grommet joining the vacuum line and the brake booster is dried out and leaking air. I need to know if the grommet is gently pulled or twisted off the booster housing - or otherwise what the removal/replacement procedure is. The grommet and vacuum line is shown on the brake booster image below the green dot.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.

The only detail given in Bentley's is "disconnect vacuum hose from brake booster." It appears to be just the plastic piece pressed into a simple grommet. So, remove the plastic piece from the grommet first, then remove the grommet.

Thank you very much! Will massage it out carefully on Monday when the part comes in.
Cheers
