If the line melts, hydraulic fluid can leak onto the vehicle exhaust and cause an underbody fire.

Power Train — Clutch Assembly

Vehicle description: Pickup trucks equipped with gasoline engines and manual transmissions. The underbody hydraulic clutch line heat shield is too short, allowing the plastic clutch line material to be directly exposed to exhaust temperatures. It is possible to exceed the melting temperature of the clutch line material.
Dealers will install the proper length heat shield.
