Dear All, Pls refer to the following pics of broken rubber parts inside the bonnet of my Punto. These were broken during the front windshield replacement at Vecto Motors, Bangalore. My question to the respected members: 1) What is the use of this rubber part? Is it for windshield water drainage or sound insulation? 2) Is this part very critical? Vecto SA says car can normally without this part but I’m little worried and pushing them to replace asap. There must be some technical reason why this part is there. Please advise.
