Power steering line help!!

Okay, so I changed oil last night and noticed a light leak from the power steering hose on the drivers side underneath the radiator, at the coupling. This morning drove to work and noticed a trail of powersteering fluid following me. Seems as thought the line is leaking real bad. I was wondering if this line has an o-ring that can go bad at the coupling? Anyone done this before and if so, will I have to replace the entire line or just an O-ring? Thanks

I'd replace the whole side that is leaking.

Not what I asked. Need to know if there is an o ring or not.

Not being rude or anything. Just a really rough morning so far.

Go to the dealer and get the line and the o ring. If you're driving a ten year old car it makes no sense in pulling something apart to replace a 5 cent o ring.

Yes, there is an O-ring.
No, I would not recommend replacing just the O-ring.

Just got off the line with the stealership. He said the techs recommend replcing the o-ring(6 bucks) versus the entire line. I want to get the new line, just need to make it around until it comes in. Everywhere I've called, it takes two to three days to get. It IS SVT specific as well. That's why I was asking about the o-ring.

Got the o-rings, replaced them in about 5 minutes. There are two of them in the quick disconnect. Inspected the rest of the line and it is perfect. O rings were 6 bucks. Thanks for all the smart ass comments. All I wanted to know was whether or not there were o rings inthe disconnect. The how to didnt show that. Problem solved.
