Default Rear shock broken air line (help)!!!

I was in the process of putting new Monroe Air shocks on my 2000 SLE today and could not get the air line out of one of the shocks, and it broke off next to the fitting. No problem with the other side. Is there a repair kit avaliable for this? Also the air line doesn't seem to have a hole in it. Even with both air lines off the shocks the compressor only runs briefly when you turn the key on. Is this normal? Any help will be appreciated

The hole is unbelievably tiny. Shouldnt be clogged being a 2000, but I guess some air is dirtier than others. Although the air compressor kicking off with a broke line makes me wonder. You can get the airline and fittings at NAPA, including compression unions to splice the airlines. Take a sample of the airline with you.
