I'm gonna guess 11mm, but i'm totally pulling that out of my butt. :) Check it with your new line using an open-ended wrench.

It's not too bad... I would suggest getting the flare-nut wrench of the right size though. That will help not strip the nut on the line if it's being stubborn. I think you'll probably end up moving the battery out of the way too to see the clutch slave. You might also be able to pull the clutch slav...

your other option is to just find the parts you want at a VW-specific auto recycler (dismanteler / junk yard) and buy them.
