a/c hose question

My focus was built in 01/03. I think this is the month that they changed the accumulator. I need a new manifold hose and I wanna make sure I get the correct one. Can anyone give me any advice?
Thank you very much.
The "entire" hose (the rubber,,,NOT the metal lines) glows heavy-green under uv light. It appears as if it is leaking through the rubber part of the hose. The metal part of the hose has a little green on it. But; the rubber part glows brightly. The hose that goes from the compressor to the condenser. There is NO other green stains anywhere under the hood. NONE on the compressor connection, NONE on the condenser connection.
I don't wanna trust the parts guy, I want advice from the experts. You guys have been a big help to me over the years, and have never led me astray.

The rubber is porous and will soak up any oil running down its' length.
