It most commonly leaks from under the short bit of rubber covering the pipe. The pipe seems to rot under there. Hence these pipes are like rocking horse dung.

You can buy the pair of pipes new but its 3 figures. Other options are to get a hose custom made - there are some threads about that on here. Or you can buy a whole oil cooler off eBay with pipes included. There are usually some available from the US where they get better weather.

Go to your local Pirtek, they'll make one up for you to your spec. Take the old pipes for them to use as a template

Just checked eBay. Can't post link on tablet but UK pair of hoses: 80
Same from US: 7.10 + under 20 postage. Might take a while to arrive though.

Even with any duty & tax that'll be cheaper, so if you can wait, then worth going for
