I meant to update this thread with a conclusion and simply forgot.
So, this was quite the mystery for me and I'm not sure I understand the why/how of it because clearly I had a leak and physically confirmed it by not only identifying the location it was coming from but also by the tiny pool of liquid/oil on the ground in my garage.
As suggested I took the car into a shop after validating they had a certified AC guy who would do the work. I had documented everything and identified the hose and even provided the part # that they could use to either get a OEM replacement or something equivalent. I get a call two hours later to pick up the car which I thought was way too quick since they still would need to have the part delivered, etc. Sure enough, they didn't replace the hose. I asked the guy about the leak and he said he did a leak test and couldn't find any issues. He said that I had way too much Freon in the system and he basically did a full "flush" (whatever they call it when it applies to your AC - flush was not the word he used) and went through a standard AC maintenance checklist - which included testing for leaks - and everything was good.
So, I don't know. I didn't really believe it but after a few weeks I don't see any leak or oil coming out from where it was before so what the heck? I guess if you put way too much Freon in your system it has to escape somehow? If so, lesson learned. Does any of this make sense to the rest of you?
