Good afternoon,

One of my insulation hoses (for lack of a better term) is starting to tear and was wondering if one of you would be able to help me name this particular hose as well as explain to me how to replace it. I do not have a picture of what it looks like now, but below is a picture (with the affected hose circled in red) of when I first bought the car. I hope to have a picture of what the hose looks like by tonight.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated

As promised, here are the pics of the hose that is torn...is this really a problem? Is it easy to be fixed? Thank you for your time!

Just the Front (does not really show the insulation torn)

The only thing I can tell you from reading the service manual is that it is called a "suction hose" and has something to do with the climate control system. I'm not sure why it has the foam insulation on it, or the importance of the insulation.

That's for the A/C. I would just wrap it with some other kind of insualting tape or even the stuff that you wrap hot water pipes with at home. It'll help your A/C run cooler.
