Yes REPLACE straight away, any hole is a Massive Defect, I would not trust or gamble my life as to when it fully gives way (which is what you will be doing). It's a blow out waiting to happen.

As I mentioned before ... Its a protective sleeve ... I wouldn't worry about it unless you want to cut the sleeve off and check the actual hose.

It's just the shroud to stop it rubbing...no need for panic
