Default Turbo leaking coolant

My drivers side turbo is leaking coolant from the fitting above the oil line. Is there a way to replace this without removing turbo?

Not having a good day with my Ford... Not only is the turbo leaking, but the hood latch isn't working, and it just started leaking tranny fluid, (probably caused from lift and slope of my driveway).

Anyways, first things first, the coolant leak. has anyone tried putting a line wrench on the fitting and tightening? Can it be taken off with a line wrench and new fitting installed without removing turbo? I was also thinking maybe i could take off fitting with line wrench, swap o-rings from a new fitting, and screw it back in without ever disconnecting the line. It looks like this is a common problem but i havent seen but one video on the repair where they remove turbo. Any help would be appreciated.
