Default Leaking Fuel Line 98 Lesabre

I have a leaking fuel line problem just in front of the filter on my 98 LeSabre. The only solution I see at this point is to purchase the entire line from the tank to the filter. Does anyone know if this is a common problem on this model. Is there some type of fix or repair kit that will eliminate the replacement of the entire hose?

That is the steel (or what used to be steel) side of the line right? You can have it fixed w/o having to buy the whole piece, however it'* best to do the whole piece if reasonably priced.

It is the side between the tank and the filter and appears to be some type of hard plastic. The GM dealer calls it the fuel feeder line and my cost is $101

Pull the fuel pump fuse, crank engine. Then pull the fuel line where it'* leaking, that should be a quick connector. Should be a O ring in there.
