    A/C hose leak

    I've just noticed that I have an A/C leak on the hose that connects my condenser to my compressor. It looks like the fluid is coming from the rubber connector that is between the hard line and rubber line. I'm not sure what the hose is called or what I need to replace. I've attached some pictures and if anyone can identify them, that would be great.
    Thanks.

    High side hose. I just replaced mine. You have three choices but first you must have the system evacuated properly (assuming it's not all leaked out by now):

    1. Buy a new one (less than $150 I think).
    2. Buy a used one (less than $50 but it's old like yours was).
    3. Have it repaired by a hose/fitting shop (in my area there is "Hose Man"). Cost somewhere in between (1) and (2).

    Then, using new o-rings, replace the hose and go to a shop and have them pull a vacuum and if all is well, recharge the system.

    Here is what I did:
    A/C line bolt spec?

    Ok, good to know what it is now, thanks! Do you know where I can pick one of them up? Would any auto parts store have them or should I go right to the dealer?
