Are you sure it is the hose and not the tank (above the hose)?

Hose leaks are certainly possible but older tanks do crack and leak. If it is the hose you will also want to replace the spring clamp with screw-type hose clamps. If you want part numbers please provide you cars model year and transmission type (Tiptronics have some different hoses).

Loren., thanks for your reply,!

I am pretty sure its the hose , ... since the tank has been replaced less than 2 years ago by the dealer, I still have that invoice with me,. it was a $600 dollars damage.

Please kindly get the part no. for me if you could.

its a MY99 C2 with 6 speed.

thanks

Look under your car and follow the hose and look for two small connections on the hose. I think it is item 18 in the diagram above. If so you will need 4 new screw-type hose clamps.
