You should try to identify what is leaking and clarify for us. There are no hoses carrying fluid to the intercooler. It is a air-to-air intercooler. Maybe I am missunderstanding your problem.

Cal Cruzer is correct.

The intercooler is Air-to-Air with no coolant involved. Is the leak coming form the front of the car near the radiator or the rear of the engine above the turbo?
