    Any vacuum tubes part of the break system?

    I have a problem with breaks, the ABS light and traction dissabled message appear after a few miles of driving.

    The code says FL wheel speed sensor but I have replaced the hub assembly and checked the circuit for continuity.

    While underneath this weekend, I found a vacuum line reducing connector that was loose on one side, the tubing had become hard and brittle and cracked. There was a little debris in the connector.

    I have no idea what this is for, but it was behind my LF wheel. I couldn't tell where it came from or where it goes, could it be related to my break problem?

    I got a soft coupler, a connector and some new tubing to try to reconnect it but I'm afraid the line may clogged.

    Anyone know what that vacuum tube does?
