Default Washer plastic tubing

My windshield washers quit spraying tonight (with no low level indication). When I opened the hood to check, I noticed the hard black plastic washer tubing had broken in the firewall grommet connection where it goes into the plastic air inlet grill in front of the windshield, and the tubing was hanging down in the engine compartment. While moving this tubing back up to reconnect, the tubing broke in two more places - it is brittle as sh*t ! Any ideas on where to get replacement tubing (or a GM part number) for this crap ? (and size?) I thought about rigging up some vacuum hose from the auto parts store if I can get tubing inserts or correct sizes.

And to top it off, it'* supposed to rain for next couple of days - which is when I usually need the washers the most !

Damn.

Mine is broken also, but I did it myself (***smacks self***). I put a piece of rubber tubing over it and hose clamped it on both ends.

Since yours is broken in several places, I would just go to the parts store and get some generic rubber hose and replace as big of a section as you need to.
