    Default 206 bonnet insulation

    Gents (and ladies),

    I’m not sure if anyone else has had this prob..

    Last week I popped the bonnet to fit a new set of headlight bulbs (thanks to the lads at 206gti.net for the detailed instructions), it was then that I realised that insulation under the bonnet had several holes in it…

    It appears as though it was rubbing on the pipe from the airbox and the battery cover.

    Has this ever happened to any one, if so, what causes it and more importantly, how is it fixed?

    First thoughts are the insulation bit was hanging a bit low, but not sure why, looks like all the screws are in.. perhaps I could attach commercial grade Velcro to the back of the insulation with the other piece on the underside of the bonnet… but not sure how will it cope with the heat generated by the engine..

    Your thoughts and tips would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I'd say it was definitely hanging low

    Seeing as it won't be removed very often (if at all) I'd recommend double-sided tape, if that's cheaper to obtain than velcro.
    Regards,

    Thanks for that - you think the double sided tape could deal with the heat under the bonnet?
