Blown hydralic pipe on hood

Well not too much to say really but got woken up early today ( i work nights ) by the misses to let me know that the hood is stuck down with the targa cover in the air. Nothing will move either way.

On looking instantly saw alot of hydralic fluid splattered all on hood and dripping onto boot. Looks like one of the pipes to the down side of the targa cover cylinder drivers side has blown.

Tried to phone Alfas for advice and a quick heads up as to the prospective cost but guess what!! They all out till Tuesday due to BH.

Just wondered if anyone out there has had a similar problem and might be able to give a rough guide as to the cost or if there might be a way to fix by self ? ( obviously would need new pipe).
