Default New member here, S80 fuel line question

Hello, New member here. I am helping a friend who owns a 1999 S80 2.9 with a fuel leak. I found raw fuel leaking from the fuel line that runs down behind the alternator and down to a sharp bend at the frame right behind the passenger wheel. The leak looks to be right where the bend is at where it rides parallel to the pwr steering line. its hard to see, but it seems like it might have rubbed itself a small hole in the line rubbing against the pwr steering line. does this sound possible? I cant see any wetness above that point on the fuel line so I don't believe it is running down the line from a higher point. my 2 questions are...
How hard is this line to maneuver out of that maze!? im hoping I don't have to remove accessories to get it out.
also, where could I find a replacement? I have searched online and cant seem to find a match. possible alternative repair?


thanks for any help!

well, I need my garage back and don't have much time, so I decided to just pull this fuel pipe out and bend up a new one as needed


thanks
