Exclamation Power Steering hose leak !

Hi everybody ! I buy recently a new bmw 323i 1999 and the car have a little problem .

The problem is the hose #9 (hose for steering rack to coil) leak from the connection (little piece of plastic) I tried everything to solve that (clean it, new o-ring, Teflon) but never succed... but the problem is the hose is brand new (4 month of use)

So, my question is can I just cut the hose and buy an other one at NAPA to put togheter with screw clamp and after put the hose on the coil connection and tight it with screw clamp ?? because oem quick connect from bmw is very cheap and leak often.

or do you have any other idea ??

Thank you !!

Buy a complete new hose from a better supplier. I've heard bad things about Uro hoses for example...
