I bought a new one after trimming the end didn't make it look any better a
while after I'd cleaned it off.  Turned out it probably was getting wet
from the pump leaking on the underside.   But the cover was all mushy
too.   New one was around $30, I think.  That and the hose from the brake
booster probably are the cheapest on the system.
