does anyone have a way to resecure the firewall insolation???
Go to an auto parts store and buy the black plastic buttons with the barbed post on the bottom.
Push them into a hole (that fits the barbs).
At the risk of stating the obvious: Barb goes through the insulation, then into the hole behind it.
thanks ronnie, lol.
Lowe's has a good selection also
Yes, a few hours spent wandering around a home improvement store and you find there are all kinds of usable goodies.
Mine is all falling off as well. Bit scared of drills...holes etc in firewalls and hoods.
I can just see a disaster happening there. hole in ac or new vent hole in hood
Might phone a friend
Is that before or after.....
- Tear off some tape
- Turn it inside out (sticky out)
- Roll it into a tube
- Pull the insulation away from the firewall then...
- Quickly throw the tape in the pocket between the firewall and insulation and let go and then
- Pound on the area with your fist.
- Repeat as required.
That's how the bodyshops do it.
I am going to try that
It normally does "something"
Just don't pound it too hard, Kiwi, don't need any bruised knuckles, or dents in the firewall, LOL!
Under the black plastic box that holds the wiring across the firewall are the holes that the plugs used to sit in. You shouldn't have to drill any holes unless its been hanging a long time
Thanks I will be working on that once I get settled into new home
Just seen this thread,my firewall insulation was partially removed by mice a few years ago,anywhere I can get a replacement/upgrade?
