Do anyone of you know an alternative to dealer hoses? I am sure that I can buy bulk hose fro a part store, but I do not know the diameter. One local place has 3/8 hose in bulk (cut what you need) that I can purchase. Any info is appreciated.

I'm guessing it's leaking cause mine has the same problem. Not a huge leak, just the hose is wet. The problem you'll have with replacing it is the end that connects to the rack. It's not just a hose clamped down, it has the metal fitting. There are places that redo lines like that, just take the metal fitting and tell them how long of a hose, what it's for and they can do it cheap. don't know where you're from but there's bound to be a shop like that around where you live. definitely cheaper than a new hose from the dealer, but to each their own way of fixing things.

Hmmmm... From what I see, there are only simple band clamps that hold it on. Are you sure that we are looking at the same area? On the bottom of the reservoir there are two hoses. There are two clamps that hold the hose on the reservoir and the rack. These hoses are not as high pressure as the upper hoses that go into the pump. ???

We're probably not talking about the same one then.
