While changing my air filter I noticed that the 2 hoses which run over the top of my engine showed considerable wear from what I think it is safe to assume being in contact with the engine cover. When squeezing the portions of the hose which show wear, the hose is significantly not as firm at these sections in comparison to the unaffected parts of the same hose.
I took the car to my dealer with this and a few other minor issues/concerns and this was the only one they did not seem to address like I hoped they would. The response from the tech concerning this item my invoice was: "R/R engine compartment lid. All hoses appear in good shape. No unusual wear noted."
My question to the Planet 9 Community -
Is this wear normal and/or anything I need to be concerned about?
Thanks for any and all help,
