    Default Rubber stoppers????

    Hi everyone. Just a quick post nothing major. But one of my wipers came off the other week, causing both wipers to clash.(ive sorted out this problem) But when i went out to check on the wipers i noticed a rubber stopper had popped out from the corner of the bonnet (ive attached a photo) on the other side there was no stopper atall. I take it there was one before. Im just wondering what these actually do? And do i need to buy a new one? If so, what are they called. Rubber stopper is the only name i can think of. Thanks

    cant be the engine cover. Its about an inch in diameter and atleast an inch long. Are you thinking of the 2 rubber washers on the engine cover? Sorry the picture might be misleading

    There are 4 mounts like that on the engine cover

    Also check that all of the rubber mounts are on your airbox

    I still think it's for the engine cover - turn it upside down, and it clips onto the bottom of the cover and the hole we can see goes over the top of a ball-bearing thing.

    Yup, definitely looks like an engine cover mounting grommet to me.
