Hydraulic clutch line

I had a break in the hydraulic fluid line that goes yo the clutch, I've been looking At different brands, and they all say they fit my car but are AN3 and AN4. Anyone know the difference and any advantages/ disadvantages?

AN3 and AN4 are fitting sizes.
I do not know which size fits what year.


How did you have a break in the line? Did the car no longer drive?

That's the thing! It says either or fit my car! So I was thinking maybe it had to do with the braid of the line? And no it doesn't at the moment, the clutch pedal lost all pressure, and if I put more fluid in, in about a minute it'll be empty on the ground, it turns on, but won't go into gear or anything

I would take off the one on there and take it in.
If possible.

Call around and abuse google a bit are my bad recommendations.

I have no idea how to take it off, although I can do simple mechanical jobs, that is not one of them. And every local mechanic doesn't know either hahahha I'll try google out a little bit more. Thanks!

I had the same problem with my 95 last week. I recommend replacing the whole clutch release assembly with a pre-bled clutch master cylinder, hose, and slave cylinder. I bought mine from Rock Auto. It cost about 130 bux with shipping and everything. It's not too difficult to install, but the clutch master cylinder is in a tight spot under the vacuum brake booster. You will need to remove the clutch master cylinder to get to the line anyway, so may as well replace it while it is out. The master cylinder is mounted to the firewall with a u-bolt and two nuts. You can get a little more working room if you loosen the four nuts that hold the vacuum booster to the firewall, just enough to pull it away about another half inch. That makes a big difference. There is also a star washer behind the u-bolt that will need to be removed before the u-bolt will come out. It doesn't need to be replaced after it's removed.

The slave cylinder is bolted to the drivers side of the bell housing and is held in with two nuts.

If you still want to just replace the hose, it is removed by tapping out a roll pin that retains it in the master cylinder. The line is held in the slave cylinder the same way.
