    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.

    Its there for sound insulation, don't spend on such parts they are of horrible quality and would get into same condition after few months.
  3. Parry,
    Please let me know the part numbers for the same, I also need them.

    When I checked with KHT body shop manager sometime back, he said these parts are not sent as spares by FIAT & have to manage with existing one itself.


    Apart from this rubber part below left side cowl top vent panel also chewed by rats & they couldn't source that too.

    Check with the dealer before you buy it, im not very sure the parts in the link are what you are looking for. It is not very clear from the parts image.
