    New one is around $5 at the auto parts store

    I found the splitter but the actual tubing has snapped in half, so I need a whole new 4 foot tube. I don't know what it's called and can't find it on internet search engines....

    Have you tried your local auto parts store? They'll probably have tubing/hoses that will work.

    Like Alex posted, use the silicone vacuum hose and splice it onto the undamaged factory line.
