Leaking through hose..

Hey fellas I've noticed my air condition hasn't been blowing out cool air and I checked for leaks and noticed that a hose down below on the passenger side that lays right on top of the control arm has cut through from the heat of the control arm . The hose has a silver heat sleeve on it and it cut right through it and the hose . The hose connects in the middlle of the air compressor and the refill nozzle...can I replace that hose from somewhere?

It wasn't heat from the control arm, it rubbed thru because the arms move. You can buy new hose's , but one of them will have to be bent VERY CAREFULLY to get it off of the arm. Known issue.
