Here's the URL to get a new one.

Yes, it is definitely broken. But the reason it is broken is that the vacuum tube that goes to the brake booster (or at least in that area) for some reason dragging the coupling out of that cable clip. It takes me a good force to ďrouteĒ the cable on the clip, but itís hard to do so. Itís like tube thatís going to the booster shrunk and became shorter. So looks like it needs to be replaced too.
