A/C leak. Name the part

Hey guys. So my freon leaks out very quickly. An auto shop said it was high pressure line for the A/C and wanted $500. I wanna make sure they weren't trying to sell me more than I need. I'm pretty sure I see the line that needs to be replaced, just not sure what it's called. Can someone help name that Pokemon! .... I mean part. Lol

Btw I intend to replace it with a buddy. He's got some tools to remove moisture from the system.

That seems about right. If you're near London Ontario, I've got one sitting around from my AC delete that could use a good home

It was fixed but then blew out again after I paid $350 for my mechanic to replace the seals
He says it’s now the desiccant bag leaking which he was supposed to replace too

I had to do this repair a year after I got my car. $500 seems high; I took it to the dealership and they charged me $230; that included flushing out a can of stop leak I had used prior, and recharging the system as well as replacing the leaky hi-pressure line.

I would suggest shopping around; definitely solicit a Mitsubishi dealer as part of your search.
