while i endorse the replacement concept, he would have been adding a $66
(+/-) part (msrp in the us) without saying a word!
btw at this point you may as well spend another $5 and get new rubber
grommets and bushings for the clutch line.

for my 86 tqw  (part no, msrp, description):
431 721 465  $66   rubber hose between clutch master and slave cyls
444 721 495  $2.30 grommet for hard line through firewall
431 721 489  $2    rubber bushing to stabilize hard line/clutch hose
