    Heath,

    I believe that I have an extra, I will check this weekend. If you are in a hurry, I would take the old hose to a junk yard and start looking at Nissan and Toyota models and compare to your hose -there is nothing special to this hose other than it is thin plastic. However, you could just get a short length of Heater Hose that will fit the HVAC housing and be done with it.

    Some hardware stores carry that type of hose. I don't recall the size but some years ago, I bought some from ACE hardware when I redid my AC.
