    Vacuum hose routing

    I just replaced a couple of the hoses going to the oil trap on my 2005 9-5 and they are very close to, if not touching, the intake manifold. Is that okay? Will it damage them? On this year/model the hoses are made of a rigid material which is probably a plastic but feels a bit like tin. Any thoughts?

    I'd have to look at my car later, but if you feel they'll rub through you could add some sort of barrier material, like spaghetti wrap.
