Hey all, I've had a hose blow out and I believe it will fall into this thread. I've attached some pics below. I don't have a dremel, but I do have an angle grinder. Would that safely cut either above the crimping or remove the crimping itself?
I was unhooking my boat and parking the Jeep when I noticed a trail of "oil" in the dirt. I dropped down to look under and saw the first pic. I grabbed a 20oz cup to catch some of the fluid thinking I'd blown a radiator hose. But the next morning discovered it was a hydrocarbon, and most likely transmission fluid (later verified by the dealership). The other pics are the attachment point of the damaged hose and area.
I spoke to the dealership and they want $199 for the part replacement, plus labor (they told me about 1.5hrs), and I'll need to tow it in.
