I have what appears to be a pretty good trans fluid leak from a cooler line. Passenger side along the beam where the radiator is sitting is where most of it is dripping.

Before diving head first I'm going to check if the banjo fittings are loose. Hopefully, that is it.

If not, next would be to replace the sealing washers. Anyone have a Saab part # for the sealing washers?

Do I need O-rings?

Last, how are the hard lines connected to the hoses?

How many would I need if I eventually ended up replacing all four of the hard lines/hoses?

TIA

Chances are likely that the hoses are leaking from the crimps. Spray area thoroughly with brake parts cleaner, then run the car for awhile and then check the lines and bolts for seepage.
Much easier and you'll spend less time wasted doing work that's unnecessary.

Just to be clear ('cause I have no idea )...Crimps are the metal sections wrapped around the end of the rubber hoses?
