My clutch went out.. Need help

My clutch went out so when I took it to the mechanic he first thought it was the master cylinder for the clutch but later found that it wasn't and it was the clutch fluid hose line. He told me he couldn't find a replacement part anywhere because jeep only used this internal clutch for a year or two and then changed to an external. Does anyone know where I can find a replacement hose line? If I can't find one the mechanic said the only other step to do it change the clutch assembly to a newer model, an external clutch, but that'd cost me 2200! Help!

The dealer should be able to get one. I have relied on the dealer for all my parts. Aftermarket parts are all crap.

No the dealerships don't make them anymore.

You could find a local pressure hose supply shop and have it made with proper fittings and all. Granted, it won't be as cheap as a pre-made one but most definitely cheaper than 2200!

My wife has a '95 with a manual and a 2.5l. I took the transmission out to have it rebuilt, then put it back in with a new clutch, master/slave cylinders, flywheel, you name it, it was replaced. Check out rockauto.com!! I got the clutch master and slave cylinder assembly for under $100!! Plus it came prefilled/bled. YouTube has a few good videos on how to replace it. Pretty simple. This was my first time pulling a transmission, but there was a video for everything I needed. The master/slave was probably the easiest thing to replace, it was very simple!! Maybe 15 to 20 minutes, max! :-)

I just checked rockauto and the line is $28. The whole master/slave assembly is $91. There is an assembly for $70, but I went with LUK brand for everything that I replaced. 1995 JEEP WRANGLER 2.5L L4 Transmission-Manual Parts | RockAuto
