Where to buy vacuum hose

So my air is only blowing out of my defroster vents. I traced all of the vacuum hoses and found that the hose going from the vacuum reservoir (black ball) to the firewall connection seems to have a crimp in it, almost like it collapsed on itself or melted kind of.

Anyways, I've been looking all over the net and cant seem to find anything or what that tiny hose is actually called. Where could a buy one new, other than the dealer? Thanks.

Why change the entire hose ?
Cut it and install a hose nipple.
Even an old piece of steel brake line will work.

Whenever I change a steel hydraulic brake line on a truck I always save a straight section or two that are in decent shape. They have many uses if you use your imagination. Use a tubing cutter for a semi-chamfered end and a two inch piece will splice a rubber vacuum line in a couple minutes.

wasn't sure if autozone had em, couldn't find anything useful on their website. I'll have to stop there after work, thanks.

Yea, i just figured since it has such a small diameter it'd be harder to come by, guess not. lol

Autozone had no clue what it was lol. I went to pepboys...even tho i hate them ever since they sold me the wrong fuel injectors. Ended up finding an emissions hose that was the same diameter and hardness, just had a wider inner diameter, no biggie. Threw it on there and viola, air came out of the vents!!
