maybe is the answer
pull out your rear seat and check those hardlines
check the lines as they go through the grommet into the floor pan of the
trunk (from there they run along the rear bulkhead and down the inside of
the seat back and then forward. Depending on where your crack is, you mioght
have luck...if its not there then you may have to pull the carpets up to
fins it and that just sucks.
