That 90 degree bend, it's a bit hard to see what's behind it? It is cold water supply you say? You will probably have to replace that 90 . It does look like a pressure-fitted part (I can't see a thread and it isn't copper, so it isn't soldered)Â and if it started to rotate with the nut, it's pretty much done for. You may be able to find a flared-joint copper pipe with the right nut that you could cut (the pipe stub) to size and solder to a copper 90 degree bend which would have to replace that steel bend. A picture facing the blue nut would probably add enough detail to show it more clearly. You can add a picture to a reply here. But, yeah, I think the 90 itself has got to go.
