200tdi exhaust/clutch slave question

Has anyone tried wrapping the exhaust where it passes the clutch slave and the small S hard line?
It may be my imagination, but it seems that my clutch get a bit squirly as the truck heat ups in traffic.
I have also noticed that the fluid get a bit dark. The soft hose is about 1.5 years old as are all the other clutch parts. I flushed it last week and have noticed it getting a bit gray again.

Was wondering what I could try, figured some type of header wrap.

I had the exhaust shop put a heat shield in there. Pretty easy to fabricate one and probably more effective than wrapping the pipe.

I wrapped my down pipe with header wrap from Summit, 25 feet does the whole pipe, and takes away some of the rattle. Also re-fitted the heat shield as I had one

Still looking for that place where I can carry a paddle and get asked what's that.

pipe wrap

I did the same thing to my down pipe as did the gentleman from Texas. I bought a kit from Summit racing they sell a kit that I insulated both my turbo and downpipe. I secured mine with .40 safety wire. I think the kit was in the 30 to 50 dollar range. Not bad insurance for protecting the parts in that area and also cuts down on the heat coming through the floor.
