If you can get to the ends of the line that is leaking, disconnect or cut out the bad section, tie a wire or rope to the old section and pull it out from the wall. Then pull a new hose back into the wall using the wire or rope. No need to expose the whole run.

While it is still a pain in the patootsie, you could cut out a long access hole in the back wall of the cabinet and then patch it back in afterward. It is just thin plywood or pressboard anyway.
If your lines are grey plastic, it is Qest (Quest?) brand and was recalled in the late-nineties as they are known for leaking at the connections. I just replaced the lines in my bathroom area with PEX line and will eventually replace it all. I did the access hole cutout to get into one area.
Best of Luck!

many post on upgrades, we replaced all of ours, lots of work by no worry now.

You can run a fish wire through the line to other end, checks for fittings that will make it difficult
