Re: Rubber Seal on Bonnet

mine is the same.
The rubber is designed to stop water from being ingested by the air intake. It looks like it seals against the headlight, so that if you hit a big water crossing and the water came up to the bonnet, it would stop it forcing down the intake from the bow wave. That is my theory anyways.

Re: Rubber Seal on Bonnet

Ooops, too quick there. There is only a rubber seal in front of the air intake, none on the other side. There is also a small foam-block to divert water from getting into the air intake if driving in heavy rain, introduced after somebody got a hydro-locked engine.
