-Bring car to the dealer, and have them check for oil leak…
Perhaps, repeating procedure might get metal pipe instead rubber hose….
Your trick worked. Thank you very much.... I did exactly from your procedure, bring car in for checking oil leak; I did not demand to fix it, just check oil leak only.
Phone ring....as expected
-"Sir your car has been fixed"
-Oh how much does it cost to fix it?
-"It's not cost you a dime sir"
- Oh, ok thank you very much, what was wrong?
-" A piece of rubber...."
-Oh ok, thank you very much for your help.
I picked up my car, but they only replaced rubber and clamps part...
I might repeat procedure in few month to get metal part .....
Again, thank you for the trick...The beauty of your trick is just ask for checking oil leak....
