Default AC hose

Anyone know the part number for the following hose or where best to get a new one without giving up a kidney lol!

I needed to replace the o-ring, but the bolt is locktighted in and you can't get a socket on it because of the angle of the hose and a ring spanner rounded the head and can't even get it to budge with vice grips and going to have to bend the hose to drill it out and AAAARRRRGGGGHHHHH
Who bloody lock tights an M6 bolt in an alloy housing! Bloody Jeep!

I did the other side as well and needed a breaker bar with full force to crack it, thankfully on that side you can get a socket on.



Was thinking I could get one cheap off rockauto but of course US is different

Is there a UK equivalent to rockauto for new parts?

Prefer to go new for this, don't want to ever have to touch it again lol.

Called Jeep Parramatta. Apparently you can only get this hose with the accumulator and the hose going to the flywheel. The accumulator and the two hoses that connect to it can only be purchased together

Price is $398 Ex which is probably not so bad including the accumulator, but a lot more than I wanted to pay for just the hose

Part number if anyone needs this in future: 55115-909AC
Actually this part number may not be correct. The diagram the guy at Parramatta Jeep was going off (only diagram he has for my vin) showed the US layout, and this part number comes up on US sites when I do a Google. More grrrr.
Edit again: Parramatta definitely has the wrong part. The US accumulator variant has the hoses molded, they're not detachable, which explains why you can only buy the accumulator with both hoses as one unit. On ours the hoses are detachable.

Why do I always seem to find these mistakes!

What's actually wrong with the hose?

Rubber section split?

Why not cut the head off the bolt, remove the hose undamaged then deal with what is left of the bolt.

In trying to remove the bolt I've slightly damaged the hose, so not confident it's still OK.

But yeah think I'll take the top off the compressor and remove it with the hose from the vehicle, then cut the bolt head off with a dremel then see if I can drill the bolt out.

Hopefully the hose is OK.

I have found those bolts seize on a number of vehicles I have worked on. I don't think it is loctited I think it is dissimilar metal corrosion. I have broken at least one sidcrome 1/4" drive 10mm socket trying to get it undone. You are right it is a pig to get to.
