Default Small vacuum leak

Hi, does anyone know how this vertical vacuum hose seals with the L-shape elbow? I removed the gray c-clip and pulled out the hose and expected to find an o-ring somewhere inside the elbow. Instead, I found a hard plasic bush inside. Maybe hardened-o-ring? Definitely feels more like hard plastic tough. Any ideas? Cannot find this hose and elbow in the porsche parts catalogue either...

The leak comes and goes when I wiggle the hose so defintiely it could seal better. TIA

If it's from the same elbow, there's an o-ring inside which is hardened and leaks. Just pull out the grey c-clip and pull the hose straight up to disengage.

I replaced the whole elbow which has a new o-ring or you can be cheap and try to hunt down the odd size o-ring.
