.and the only reason that little curved black hose is there is to keep water from getting into the solenoid when it's raining or while washing the car.. so unlike the it's position in the picture, the curved end should be pointed down.

Origonally those litle short curved hoses were made for Mercedes. They use them for all the vacuum line connections and they run teflon plastic hose between them instead of long runs of vacuum hose which takes up less room and lasts alot longer than rubber hose... A much better and more elegant installation for vacuum lines than any other car made.
