Death Foam Replacement


When poking new cables through from the cabin to the engine bay on my '68 Beetle, I discovered that there is foam in the gap between the bay and cabin where the loom goes back to the engine bay. Guess it is to reduce noise transferal. No rust that I can see however looking for suggestions on what to put in the gap to reduce noise but not cause rust in future.
Cheers

I know the foam is a rust magnet. In the convertibles, there is a triangular shaped pillow that stuffs up in there. It will probably work for the sedan as well.

It is made up from spare roof lining material and the stuffing is the padding that goes between the roof and the lining. From memory, each side of the triangle is about 15cm long.

I could be wrong but I don't think foam should be on a '68. My '70 (Australian) had the triangular pillows but the'68 being German may have foam.



I read it on samba, so it must be correct.

Sometimes Volkswagen dealers sell spare parts. Amazing isn't it!:lol:
