Yes, that line might even be available from VW, but it is simple to 
just buy the correct length premade line and bend it to fit.

Where are you measuring the 10mm? The correct 1mm clearance 
at the MC will give about 10-20mm play at the pedal. If you are 
measuring the play at the pedal, 10mm sounds just about right.

It's not part of the pedal cluster, but there is (was?) a ball about 
that size in the turn signal switch, for the detents.
