Remove AAV and cap manifold

I want to remove the AAV and need to plug the manifold fitting. The hose is 3/4" on the AAV side and 1" at the manifold. How did you plug the manifold? I can use a short piece of 1" hose and put a bolt in it but there must be a cleaner way of doing this. I purchased a 3/4" cap for the intercooler side but I can find a 1" cap.

I found a cap at Napa. I have heard of some people using a short piece of hose with a wooden dowel rod cut to fit and shoved in the hose.Seems to work as they had no problems since the install.Hope this helps.

Most auto parts stores sell rubber caps.

I'm always too lazy to run down to the auto store for a more ellegant fix, so I opted for the short piece of hose plugged with a bolt and hose clamp.

you can go to the hardware store or home depot and buy a similar rubber thing for the end of a chair leg that will fit too.

it might even last a few years.

JFairman, the chair leg cap is a good idea.

I went to 2 auto part stores already and they only had caps to 3/4" and I need a 1" cap.

Beware of cheap rubber caps, they usually dry rot within the first year and the end blows out. They have no reinforcing like a good piece of hose.

A bolt or dowel in a piece of high quality hose is ugly as can be, but usually works well over time.

My 2 cents.

I ended up using a wood dowel and hose to cap it off.
Thanks for the help.

I use reinforced rubber hose with steel pipe caps and a clamp. Looks OK and functions long term.
