I think all you need are some clips. I used to see them for sale on eBay but i cant seem to find them now. CCI doesn't seem to do them either, at least not for the under bonnet pad.

Try Martin maybe?

Hi,
As stated, try Martin first.
If he can't help, you need something that looks like these. I can't remember how many, but I think it's around 12 or so. I'll count the exact number later on for you.

Andrew.

Christ!

Back in the day I used to just tear that padding off! All it did was make the cars overheat and you could hear the engine better as a result.

Times change!
