Default Replacing turbo oil feed line

I am replacing my turbo, and I have it out, but I cant get a wrench onto the oil supply line at the engine block. I have an 03 PT Cruiser GT. If any one has any suggestions before I break down and take it to the Chrysler dealer, that would be amazing. Thanks.

Chris I looking to do the same thing but want to start off with replace hose to buy some time on turbo that I will have you guys rebuild when I have more money. Also I wanted to put an braided line in on stock 05 PT Conv GT Turbo that I just bought with 109000 on it and I am very afraid that turbo will fail if I do not. Any help for me...

The hose isn't going to save either turbo. If your hose is coked up so is the turbo and the new hose can't help that. Here is why I say this. The line has a opening of say a 1/4 inch or bigger. The oil passages in the turbo are less than a 1/8 inch. The passages get clogged by the heat from the turbo. Especially when driven spiritedly and shut off without idling back down to operating temps. This heat also cooks the oil in the line just above the turbo. The first two inches from the turbo out is the part you want to look at. Unbolt it and look in the end ans see if its clogged. Also look at the brass adaptor for the same issue. Clean them if you see any. I had to remove the axle and intermediate shaft so get room to get at the oil line where it fastens to the block. A braided line will serve no function for preventing turbo failure.
