Hi all. I'm trying to repair a leaky fitting on my Avant's tailgate washer hose. I'm getting terribly confused on what fits with what. I'd go ahead and order a few assorted connectors if it weren't for the fact that they all seem to run about $10 each. Here's a pic of what I have.

Basically the plastic elbow no longer holds the seal against the jet's nipple. What's the proper part(s) to fix this? The part lookup says it should be this.

The original looks like it has a barbed connection to fit the hose, while the new one is more of a nipple. Is this correct? How exactly does this fit the existing corrugated hose? Thanks for any insight.
