    Mine also has some padding on the underside so I'd say it also has a noise reduction function. If you don't notice or mind the car being any noisier then I'm sure it will be fine without it.

    I wouldn't like to guess how much a new one would cost from a dealer.

    Yes had noticed the padding but with the bonnet down the noise difference is nothing (sounds like a tractor anyway)

    have also noticed oil / diesel? run off the padding on the tab that covers driverside cylinder head, which is worrying so better keep an eye on that:shrug:

    Mine does the same but its a very small amount and i have never managed to find where it comes from. Whilst investigating it a while back i found that the overspill pipes on the injectors had perished so that got fixed but never found the source of the oil.
