Tony:

A100P0124F has been obsolete since 20/10/2008.

Are you sure you need the return line for the R134 system? I think you have an SE, so you would have the R12 version.
Hose #50 is C100P0030F. This hose also went obsolete on 23/10/2008

Is it the tubing or the fabric hose section that is damaged?

The tube can be "silver soldered" or tig welded and the fabric hoses can be re-crimped or hose-clamped (they make special hose clamps for A/C hoses).

Please attach a picture of the damage or explain what is broken / damaged.

A lot of basic A/C repair fittings are available. I have a set of hoses from SteveM's car but I need to know exactly which hose you are looking at and what is wrong. Then I can hopefully suggest a solution. Of course, the FED version has a different part number, but at least I can see something that is close.

Hi John
yes sorry the early part no, I just looked carefully at the compressor end connection and that's the one I have. the pipe has been repaired in the past and a bit of a mess. The compressor was new when I got the car 6 years ago have new receiver dryer and 134 ports, all works great but wont hold the gas very long. so not environmentally friendly and expensive as in frequent re gassing .

Can you identify the source of the leak?

Have you had a dye added to help locate where it is leaking from?

That might make it easier to decide if the line can be repaired or needs to be replaced.

Pirtek can probably replace/repair/rebuild the metal lines up to and possibly include the connections:

Section "B" looks like a protective cover while "A" looks like a flexible portion.

The fittings are all fairly standard and Air Conditioning Specialists usually have the crimping tools to make up just about anything.

Talk to Pirtek and see if they can do it or refer you to someone who can.

B is a foam insulating cover now needs replacing no problem though. the leak is in between the right angle bend after the flexi pipe and at the end of B near the port. It looks like the headlight raising lowering mechanism has been wearing it away as the pipe runs right underneath it and has had a repair in that area in the past. Was hoping to get another pipe to make life easier but hens teeth come to mind :-D failing that I will see if i can get repaired ! Thanks for the info John
