Doing some Google searches and only finding JKF chat.

Mine is leaking at both hardlines just behind the radiator.

Has anyone in the real world done this repair?

I am well out of warranty range. I think we are looking for a part # replaced and some idea if it can be done at home.

Thanks

Is it leaking from the rubber/metal junction? Iv heard of people hacking off those clamp sections, flaring the pipe, and clamping a new rubber hose on. I think I read it in the LONG transmission cooler writeup thread on "the other forum".

I'm in.
Last monday was -30c and the line to the cooler burst around the rubber/metal joint (just behind the cooler).
Dealer checked it yesterday and they ordered new lines.
Still under warranty but the parts were 92$ for both lines.
Repair to be done next week.

We replaced these lines on yellow08rubicon's Jeep last weekend. They were also leaking from the junction where the rubber lines meet the metal lines. The removal/replacement was not very hard at all. You pull the little plastic cover off each end, then there is a small clip (like the ones that hold on window cranks) that has to be pushed out of the collars. Make sure you catch these when they go flying, they didn't come with his replacement lines. Give the line a tug and they pop them out of the tranny/radiator. The lines will leak fluid for a minute, but the lower opening of the tranny will leak until you place the new line into it, so make sure you have a quart of fluid to top it off before you drive away. The installation is just the opposite and it took us about 30 minutes to do (we had the Jeep up on lift). He contacted Peter at JustforJeeps.com for the lines, I can't remember how much he paid though. Hope that help!

I had the same problem with mine and when I was at the dealer for work on a recall I mentioned that they have been leaking and the replaced them under warranty for free.

Dropped mine at Dealer this morning. Have a Jeep buddy Service Writer. Getting lines replaced for $125 (his cost), out the door. Got lucky on this one.

Leaks were getting worse daily, with 40 degree temp swings.

Just picked up the lines from the dealer. $28.95 That's the dealer price, no discounts or anything. But you need to get calling, as were just sent to the dealers on Tuesday, and are on a major backorder at this point.

I was thinking about taking a pair of metal tubing cutters and cutting that dumbass flare fitting off, and using clamps, and some barb fittings to fix the damn things. Are the new part # differant than the one that is currently on these things, if not I bet you will have the same problem a few thousand miles later

mine does the same thing, think id rather cut that metal to rubber junction off since the new ones will prob leak also.

worse case is they leak also then you can replace the whole line with the new one from dealer.
