Does anyone know why I have some white stuff on the foam on the underside of the hood? Why is foam there anyways?
When I picked up my '06 SSR in April. I saw white stuff on the hood pad. Dealer said he would order me a new one and ship it to me. (Dealer in OH I'm in VT). I received it with 2 corners bent. :banghead So I just received the replacement with 3 corners bent. :banghead :smash Once they get bent they break. Has anyone had a problem with bent corners on there hood pads? I think maybe when they wrap it in bubble wrap to ship they bend and break them. Any thoughts?RedTn.SSR said:My SSR had the "white stuff" on the black underhood pad when I picked it up at the dealership. The car had 3 miles on it, it was the end of Nov., and no snow or salt had been on the roads yet. I managed to rub most of the white stuff off with a cotton towel but I still don't know what the stuff was. Sort of powdery, not granular. Maybe some type of polishing compound?
:agree :agree :agree :agree :agreeChevySSR said:If your engine gets moisture on it, and sits for a few days it will develop a white powder on the aluminum surfaces. Could this stuff be thrown onto the hood pad when the engine is started? Just a guess.
