I have just been reading the article on mist jets and it brought it home to me that I have no such insulation.

Does this insulation cut down road noise at all, and if it does, any suggestions on where I could get a pad and the necessary clips

Thanks

The bonnet insulation only really comes on deisels mate n mk2.5 models I think. I don't have it either.

Can be purchased here on Taobao

But it's 100quid for essentially whats just a bit of padding

Welcome to the forum,
your best option would be to email some breakers through ebay. write the message in ebay once. then copy&paste it to other breakers on ebay then wait for them to respond. and im not 100% sure but i think the mk2.5 insulation will fit the mk2 aswell.

my mk2 has it aswell...most cars do come with nowadays. when i had a 307 petrol I took mine off to make it sound a little louder etc....the days of being the road Richard cranium lol maybe this is what has happened with yours...someone before you has took it off.

the insulation is just there to sound proof the engine a little. but over time does disintegrate and fall to pieces. for the price of a new one i wouldnt bother, would be a scrap yard visit if it was needed that badly.

Thanks all - if I can find some cheap enough at a breakers I may do it, but it hardly seems worth it if it doesn't cut down the noise by much

My 2008 Titanium 2.5 1.8 Ltr petrol has the bonnet insulation, all Fords I have owned in the last 15 years have had it.

i took mine off because i fitted the bonnet vents. i'd give it to you for free but it would be a pain to post. i have most of the clips too i think...

i could see if it can be rolled if you want.

it does cut the noise considerably add an undertray to that and its a huge difference the difference between mine without and with is quite surprising all new fords have even newer thicker insulation open the bonnet when they are cold they arent so quiet

Stan, unfortunately the bonnet sound insulation doesnt fold very well at all. i can wrap it in plastic bags/bin liner and see what it would cost postage wise for you if you want.

I'd have took you up on that offer lol cause I'm only half hour away when I'm in Birmingham so I'd collect it.

Stan asked first though so it's his.

I haven't got this on mine either. I believe all 1.6 petrol foci don't have it, mk2 and mk2.5.
The engine noise isn't a worry for me, although the silencer makes a right racket. Like a metallic vibrating on acceleration. :S
