correct me if I'm wrong Realbored... this protects the hood from excessive heat does it not?
That is definitely from chewing. The dealer may still replace though ? I would definitely check the rest of the truck just in case though
I just got back from a week in dominican. Flight an hour late. Some how a bunch of flights showed up at once. Airport was a zoo. Finally get to my xd parked in the parking garage. Start the truck, the wife asks why foam is coming out from under the truck. So I pop the hood, to discover the hood shield to be mostly not there. Ripped apart. Whatever did it proceeded to pack the engine cavities with the foam. Me and my kid spent the next hour removing the foam. I can only imagine if we had of drove off and the wife didn't notice. That foam was packed all around the turbo. Could have possibly lead to a fire.
I was thinking the same thing.Sounds like there might be something in the protectors that is possibly attracting the varmints.
Most cars don't have a glowing red hot bi-turbo a few inches below the hood. Now I might be wrong but I'm sure it's a sound deadener but it also helps insulate the hood from that turbo heat. I would hate to have a beige tinge show through my white paint. I had to rip mine off as it was that bad. I will get one on order.It looks like it just took what he needed to make a nest. My truck is always parked somewhere different so it would have to be the smartest mouse ever to keep finding my truck. I wouldnt have even of noticed it if I didnt need washer fluid filled. How often does someone look under their hood these days. I was told it actually serves no purpose. It doesnt even come on most cars
