2015 SXT plus
I don't know the official name (if there is one): The little rubber strip where your hood rests and prevents slamming metal on metal. Mine is torn, not sure how and currently flaps in the wind if I don't reposition it precisely before closing the hood. I would love to replace it myself and avoid going to the dealership at all costs. I HATE my dealership with a sickening passion. Pretend my dealership is ran by up selling con men that just want to charge me $40.00 for a plastic rivet. So, what would you do to fix this?
A guy at AutoZone said they don't sell anything like that (was looking for a cut to size gasket) He said his tore on his GTI and he just used Gorilla Super glue to glue it back. I don't really want to do that, thinking that right now is my last resort. Tried searching part websites like CarID and couldn't find anything.
I would rather order the part online and install a new one myself. The trouble is, I'm not sure what it is called. There may be a thread all about this, but I couldn't find it under the key word search "Hood Gasket" "rubber strip for hood" etc. I'm not exactly handy with car repair, but would like to learn - even if it is trial and error.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! :grin2:
