No, they are not available any more (same with the rad support for my 94 A3)

I made new tubes from 3/8" ID copper tubing that previously had been a
propane gas line to a stove in our Kitcken.

Right size

Won't rust

Easy to shape

I soldered a ring of copper wire aroud the tube about where the swaged rib
was on the original'

Try to make them as close to the same length as the originals, as it will
affect your cable adjuster position.
