Yes. I believe that's the $1,000 vacuum line in the estimate. However, I've found it for $600 and the dealer service foreman said I can bring my own parts so just going to go that route.

The only difference is when I had this happen my car had been in an accident. They claimed they did no work to the motor or ac and the dealership told me the small tear came from an impact but wasn't from the accident. I knew they had messed with it but they flat out refused to take responsibility. Fast-forward to this summer when i replaced my radiator and guess who had a aftermarket Chinese part. But yes that small flex in that hose can tear and cause major issues with the computer trying to control idle. Esp if you live where temp fluctuates a lot.
