The dealer has the stock type clutch hose available, only the kind that has a metal line that goes to a metal clutch master cylinder, with a short section of rubber (brake hose) crimped to it near the connector to the slave cylinder. If you have the type that has a black plastic master cylinder, then you can only get a new hose with a new master cylinder. If you have the first type, you may be able to make a new one with a section of "Bundy-Flex" tubing and a short brake hose that a good parts store with a good parts counterman would be able to match up with the help of a progressive size list/buyers guide parts book. I don't believe that the factory hose costs too much, though. Get some heat shield insulation, available from speed shops, and wrap the new one where it gets close to the exhaust to help prevent it from happening again. Check your motor mounts for wear, also. Hope this helps, good luck!
