On a 99, on the top of the front wing right at the back should there be a piece of plastic/rubber trim to stop the bonnet rubbing or hitting the wing?

Apologies for the rubbish picture - but I mean here where the hole is in the flat section:

This car had a thick bit of foam tape stuck there before I sprayed it, but i am assume this replaced an earlier factory part!

If anybody has a 99 with something factory here can you post some photos of it so that I can attempt to make one.

Hi, Tom. It's No. 9 in the attached diagram, described as "rubber buffer". Also used on the 900.

Cheers Bill!

After asking this I realised that I actually have a copy of the parts book too and have now managed to dig it out myself to find the part number :)

It looks like this is the thing i'm after:

Assuming that this is long long NLA, does anybody have any suggestions for a cheap modern part that has a similar looking rubber profile and size. I can print a flat ABS base with a clip and glue the rubber to the top of it myself.

In the parts fiche it has a different 'clip' 7323579 on the other side, which I assume should look like this - viewtopic.php?f=1&t=86470

should I have one of each or are they just options? (I could probably print the latter one myself out of ABS...)

You already have that part! It has been painted over, it is next to the bonnet runner. The piece that is missing is a hard white plastic clip.
7323579.

The rubber buffer can be seen to the right.

Aah - So I do!

It makes sense now. That diagram in the parts book is rubbish!

Thanks for the pictures

I can also see in your picture there where your bonnet rubs which is where mine both have a bit of foam stuck. My other car had a larger flat rubber bit which covered the flat section and went up the vertical part on there too which is what I was initially assuming should be affixed to this hole! ...
