It is the O/D that counts, as you just push it into the outlet of the cooler and the outer edges make the seal. You should also get a short (5cm) length of garden hose to use as an adapter on the end of the return hose (that you removed from the cooler) to fit a funnel. Use this to add fluid.
Hi, so I need 15mm OD hose, I will have a look for some.

You talk about adding fluid back in to the return line but should it not be done via the fill port on top of the gear box?

What you really need is a washing machine tube...

Like this one:

Works like charme.

Have you used this on the later xc90 (2007 and above) on the 6 speed auto?

That's 19mm thought we need 15mm?

This tube or hose fits perfectly on the outside of the cooler (this doesn't sound right in my ear languagewise, I'll better explain further ).

The hose with the smaller diameter is to push inside the connection on the cooler. With the rubber on the washing machine hose, you do it the other way, you push it over the connection...

Tbh, it wasn't my idea, but it works just great. Look here:
https://youtu.be/-DxEmb-2s2A?t=301 (starts at 5:01, were you can see the hose). At 5:14, you see what I'm trying to explain in my bad english (sorry).

EDIT: the rubber in the washing machine hose is more like a universal adapter
