I had a tranny line on my bonneville leaking about a year ago. It was similair to what you have it sounds like. What I did was drain the fliud out, took an angle grinder and cut out the section of line leaking. The I got a rubber hose that had an inside diameter of 1/4 or 3/8 or whatever it was and I patched the tranny line with that. I tightened each side with hose clamps. I don't know where your line is, but if the leak is next to any sort of fuel source, I wouldn't stick no angle grinder in there!!! Hope this helps!

You can find an AC line splice kit on amazon, eBay or at just about any auto parts store. It'll be a little more expensive at the store though but it'll work for you rather then having to change your AC line. Make sure you pull a good vacuum on the system before charging it
