Trek Brake Hose

Got a couple of older Treks (4500 and 8500) and I'm trying to work out how the brake hose is retained in the top tube guides. I'm assuming that there is a spacer which slides over the brake hose and pushes into the guide but I can't find any.

Any help identifying the parts and locating somewhere to buy them would be appreciated

This is why!

    It's common to use a split sleeve that can be pushed over the hose and then into a guide to retain it in place, try your LBS.
