I need a suggestion,

There is a black carpet like thin material that is installed on the hood of the vehicle. It reduces the noise from the engine.

In the last to last service, the Hyundai ASS people managed to misplace it. After a little drama, they promised to have one fit during the next service.

And viola! When I went to the ASS centre, all employees are new not a single old employee.

Anyways, I am in search of this product. I am not sure where to find it. I am only interested in noise reduction from the engine. The hood heats up due to the engine running and I personally want to stay away from heat insulation for the hood.

A plain simple product that can be installed under the hood to reduce sound. Has anyone purchased this before or does anyone know a place in Bangalore where I can pick it up from, please do let me know. (yes, JC Road is the place to go, but a recommended shop would be appreciated. Over the years a lot of new shops have sprung up and not all of them do a decent job)

Thanks

Please note, I have no such inclination for ICE, basic idea is sound proofing.

Sorry for OT, though tyres (OEM Goodyear) have done just 20k, but I want to change the same for above-mentioned reason, So suggestions will be really appreciated.
If I'm not wrong, Octavia comes with factory fit sound deadening material. I would suggest the following:-

1. Go for dynamat/alternatives for the floor of your car. The product will look like a thick rubber carpet.

2. For the door panels, additional sound absorbing material would be needed.

3. The back of the rear seats, which faces the boot, you can add a layer of sound deadening material. Try driving with the last row folded. You will shocked to see the noise entering the cabin from the boot.

4. If the road noise is noticed at higher speeds only then a tyre change would be needed

5. Check the door seal strips. Replace them with thicker ones or aftermarket ones. They seem to do a much better job in terms of acoustic insulation. I had done the same for my Scorpio and there was a noticeable difference.

Hope this helps

Has anyone tried installing damping mats / damping paint(spray) in the wheel wells (between the body shell and the plastic cladding) in any car ? Want to explore this.

Had installed damping sheet under the hood of my car, though even I was a bit skeptical about the heating aspect - seems to be holding perfectly well after about 3 years and 52k kms. Bought the material and got it installed at High Definition Cars, Jayanagar (Haven't visited the place recently though).
