Default transmission oil cooler snap fittings

Hi,
I took my x type into an auto transmission shop today and came out with a quote for 500 quid plus vat! When i got home, I took the front valance off (which hadnt been off for years!) and started her up. The oil wasn't coming out of the oil cooler at all: there are two black hoses from the trans, with rusty ferrules on the end and black plastic quick fit connectors with tangs that engage on the aluminium ferrule. I'm sure you know about them!
Question: there is a small leak from the top connector which is causing all the grief. Can I disconnect it and replace an o ring inside (if there is one) or do I need a new hose? Any ideas as to how to repair would be greatly appreciated! I've tried reseating it and moving it slightly to no avail.
Thanks

No o rings, you can cut, re-flare metal, use new TOC hose, after market clamps, or buy an easier New hose.

Hi Dell,
Many thanks for the advice. I had thought that would be the case. At least its not the 500 pound repair the garage had suggested! It makes me very angry when every garage you seem to go to here tries to rip you off! I'm going into town today to find some new hydraulic quality hose and clips and spend this afternoon with the sky filled with sump pans and springs!
Thanks again for taking the time to message.
Regards
Mark

I'm planning on doing a oil change by draining and filling while engine running by taking the feed pipe into a bucket while injecting the same quantity of new oil back into the return pipe. can you check if the top hose is the feed pipe or the return pipe.

On mine its the top hose for return, but make sure you follow the hoses up to the banjo bolts in case they are twisted on the way up!
