I think it diverts to windscreen when the engine vacuum line is disconnected.... a black line into the intake manifold.

Right hand side just to the left of the window washer bottle. There should be 3 lines (if not 4) 2 black and a dark green coming out of the firewall.
Check that 1 black one goes to the heater tap and the other goes to a T piece coming off the intake manifold.
