    My A/C line blew out last night, scared the hell out of me. Surprised how quick my reaction was to turn the motor off. None the less I've been looking through the FSM trying to figure out what clamped this together.. Hoping I don't need to replace this line or go to the dealer for small part..

    Not sure if its the same on the 1st gen, but my 2nd gen has this plastic coupler that joins the two pieces together. Probably something you can go grab at the dealer for a few bucks.

    Dealer 1 told me all he saw was the line... About to call another.
    Dealer 2: buy two new lines...

    Worst case:

    You can kinda see the plastic fitting in the photo below. You should be able to slide the two tubes back together and clamp a new coupler on. May want to also check your engine bay for the old one.
