Scroll up to the first couple of threads on this post to see pictures. Part number is MOPAR 68084597AB and is described on the packet as SEAL HOOD. I see you're in Brissy. Both Albion and Mansfield rip off the original seal which simplifies installation of the bonnet protector. MM1964 kindly posted the Bonnet Protector installation instructions that clearly show the seal retained in position. I posted photos that show a purple dye in car wash suds running in my air intake proving why IMHO the seal should be retained. That was under moderate water pressure. God knows what happens when your driving throught torrential rain at speed, or worse still, water fording. (PS Our US friends refer to this seal as a snow seal to stop build up of snow flakes around the air intake). Either way, its there for a good reason. EDIT: I can see the part availabe in the US for around $7USD. Jeez, the dramas I had getting a new one supplied!!!!
