Frayed turbo hoses

Took the engine cover off last week to check for any obvious problems and spotted some frayed hoses - does anyone advise changing them or is this normal? if so where can I get replacement and better ones (I am guessing the heat from the turbos has caused this)?



Cheers,
Dave

Also, I believe that's just the outer sheathing. The inner rubber line should still be intact.

I would still replace them if they are looking like that, however.

Thanks - no obvious problems from them - can anyone give me the size of the hose?
Are they all the same size?

4mm for turbo vacuum lines. 3.5mm for some other vacuum hoses. Get both sizes and replace all of them it's not that expensive.
