Default 09 DTS Trans Cooler Hose Leaking at Transmission

Hi all, new here. I have a leak in my transmission cooler hose right at the clip but I cannot figure how to access it. I've pulled the wheel and just can't fit my fat hand in there. Please tell me there's a way to get to it with out pulling the engine... thanks in advance!

I'm guessing lower at radiator? try removing cooling fan. Cars aren't designed for big hands or forearms.

Hi - rereading my post I wasn't very clear - it's actually leaking at the transmission and I just don't see a way to get at it without dropping the transmission. I was hoping someone had an idea...

at the transmission where front or back? The one in the back sucks .... it is accessed from under car, but I not sure it can be done in the driveway. You would need to jack up car a couple feet for sure. You would need to the sub frame bolts loose. The steering loose from sub frame so you damage steering gear or intermediate shaft. The power train will be supported be mounts attached to frame rails. Good Luck
