R350 air conditioner line

Hi, I am a new member to this forum. I have owned my 2007 R350 for about a year. I live in Canada and bought the car in California and imported it into Canada last year.
I got my air con system checked out and it turns out there is a leak in one of the lines near the rear left wheel. The cost of the line is over $500 and there is no shop time listed to give me an estimate on how long it will take to fix it. The service manager checked with one of the Tecs at an MB dealership and he estimated 5-6 hours. (@ $120/hr) So, it looks like the bill would be around $1400 tax for the fix. Just wondered if any other MB owners had trouble with a AC line to the rear AC and what they did to repair it. Seems like a pretty poor design if it takes that long to install and AC line.
