Bonnet Insulation

Recommended Posts

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.

ford do it for 70quid plus v.a.t all 2.5s have it petrol and diesel and all mk3s as it cuts road and engine noise stops the bonnet discoloring from engine heaj

Do 2.5 petrols have the insulation? Mine's doesnt!

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

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

Check your heat shields and exhaust hangers, they will cause all manner of rattling and vibrating when accellerating.

the rear hanger at the end of the backbox almost at the tip of the tail pipe has a habit of the weld snapping and rattling on the box also the heatshield just along the edge of the tank can lose a clip rattling away

a plastic tray that fits under the engine stops all the road crud getting in and lowers noise like this
