Yep, an extreme chore to replace this line and rather expensive as well. Use a dremel grinding tool with a small cutoff disc, and you can perform surgery to remove that crimped-on leaking bit$h, then hose clamp on a rubber hose. Or, you may want to try throwing a hose clamp onto the crimped area and tightening as much as you can....might compress the fitting to stop the leak, who knows?
