Question Missing seal - Bad quality control? or...

Somebody at the dealership need a spare part for a vehicle in for service?

Took delivery with 10 miles on the odometer.

My 2012 has nothing on the hood, all sealing is done by the lower seal. That's a deflector for the area around the air intake, perhaps it's regional specific or you have an earlier build? Mine was built in March 2012

That's weird. The holes on the passenger side are a perfect match up to the mounting points of the seal on the drivers side.

Re: Missing seal - Bad quality control? or...

I believe that seal (D/S) is there to deflect water from entering the air intake. Even though the same holes are on the other (P/S) side, no seal is used there. This is for LH drive vehicles.
