エンジンベイ遮音マットの張り替え / Replacing engine bay insulation mat
I wanted to do this job while the engine is off from the vehicle. First I scraped out a number of spreaded pieces and tiny fractions of original insulation mat deteriorated for years. The mat, made of much heavier material than the aftermarket one I purchased, should be factory original equipment. The sponge material was all deteriorated and the fragments were piled up at every corner inside engine bay.
The aftermarket insulaton mat I purchased. Much lighter than the original.
Displacing wire harness, removing engine hood shocks and degreasing the surface…
Applied rubber-based adhesive and kept it for drying.
Completed. In order not to have it peeled off after years, I have put two large washers by bolts screwed into two original M6 tapped holes for peace of mind.
