Transmission cooler lines

Hey guys I have a 2007 jeep grand cherokee hemi. It looks like my transmission cooler lines are seeping and will need replacement at some point. The lines are leaking at the rubber fittings. Jeep said this was a common issue and the stealer ship wants $600 for labor and parts. My question is has anyone done is repair or has anyone just cut the rubber lines and replaced them? I know snaking the new lines in are a real pain. Thanks any help would be appreciated.

Re: Transmission cooler lines

That's correct. I did this myself and it is a common issue that can be corrected by simply cutting off the existing rubber hoses and metal crimped-on clamps and installing fuel line hose (3/8" if I remember correctly). I used a Dremel tool to cut away the metal clamps carefully without cutting into the metal transmission lines. I then used two hose clamps on EACH end of the rubber hose to reattach the hoses in place. They're only about 8 or so inches long but it's a pretty cramped space to work in. I also worked from both above and below the lines in order to get the best/tightest connection with the hose clamps. Worked like a champ and saved me hundreds of $$$. Good luck.
