Hose Clamp Repair Help

I have oil dripping from the clamp in the attached photos. It's not pouring out but it needs to be repaired before it gets worse. The problem is - and as you can probably tell by the hilarious "clamp on clamp stupidity" seen in the photo - I have no idea how to fix it and can't find a "tool" anywhere that is meant to help me. Instead of continuing to do dumb things I figured I'd reach out to my GenCoupe friends so someone can guide me out of the darkness and into the light :-) See photos below:





Thanks in advance!

Is that a power steering hose? If it is, you need to replace the whole thing.

I don't think it is the power steering hose but one of the hoses for the oil cooler... I need to check the 2013 service manual but if it is the power steering hose what makes it so crazy that it can't be repaired? Forgive my ignorance.

From the look of it, that's not just a slip-on hose fitting. If it was, the clamp would be on the hose, not the steel tubing. The hose is crimped onto the steel tubing and can't be repaired. The steel fitting looks kind of beat up, too, like someone used a pair of pliers on it for some reason. I wonder if somebody managed to crack the steel fitting and put a couple wraps of electrical tape or something around it, then put the hose clamp on to try to seal it. If it is an oil-cooler hose, you REALLY need to replace it.

Thank you for the video and the explanation. Very helpful. I will track down which part it is and order it. The metal is beat up from me trying to clamp it down more - obviously not knowing what I was doing ;-)

Actually you can cut off the crimped aluminum band and then just use a hose clamp.

Power steering fluid usually operates at much, much higher pressures than oil or coolant. If it is a PS hose, buy a replacement. Those hoses are mechanically crimped for a reason.

Actually that is an AC hose and you will need new OE.

Ok, thank you, Red... I will look for the part online and order it but would really like to understand how I have oil leaking out of my AC!

Oil is added to the freon for the compressor.

Got it. To answer your question RE: work or accidents - nope. I do as much as my own work on the car as possible and maybe I was rough on it by accident. The car has 120,000 miles already and it is a very slow leak but is it possible I caused it by too much freon - because I did a year ago.

Any idea what the actual part # is? Why do I have this feeling that this specific item is not going to be cheap. Also, can I actually replace it myself or does it require some guy with a gas mask and a bunch of credentials?

You can change an A/C line yourself, but youíll want a certified tech to evacuate/recharge the system properly. You likely wonít be able to buy the R134a without credentials.

The hoses look to be about $50 each. It depends on the date of your cars manufacture, on the driver door placard. Anything before 11/15/2013 is the new style always running compressor, before that date it's the old style clutch controlled. They take different hoses. Almost any reputable AC repair shop should be able to make the hoses if you want to do this locally.

here's the BK2 parts for the post 11/15/2013 https://www.jimellishyundaiparts.com...ring=ac%20hose

At 120k miles it needs a complete flush and vacuum before refilling with the R134a and tight amount of oil. New desiccant sock too for the condenser. You cannot do this yourself without a vacuum pump. You can rent them or buy for around $50. R134a is off the shelf here at Walmart for around $4 a can.

You can get complete kits off Amazon and eBay that include most parts you need for around $300-$400 compressor included.

What kind of place am I looking for if I want to take this to a specialist? This sounds like the kind of thing I really shouldn't do myself unless I know what I'm doing - which I don't. I mean, should I look in the yellow pages for "auto repair - we specialize in auto cooling?" or what? Obviously I don't want to take it to a place where some guy like me is going to work on it! ;-)

Red - so you don't think I'm walking away from this without dumpin' around $500, right? So do I save money by doing it myself or not? It sounds like it probably would be the same...

It's doable at home but you need knowledge and the tools. I did a complete change out on my Accent last year with one of the kits, $300 and a set of gauges from, $60 with the vacuum pump $50. Another $30 for gas and miscellaneous parts. Then you need to figue out how to load the gs and oil......

Unless you really want to learn and do it yourself I would take it to an independent garage and ask for an estimate for an evacuation, repair of the hoses and refill.

Once you determine which hose it is, high side (pressure), or low side (return), call a shop or shops that have certified A/C techs and ask. They should be able to give you a rough quote over the phone. The hose should be less than 2 hours labor, and evac/recharge is usually 1.5 hours at whatever their posted rate is, plus refrigerant, usually just over a pound.
