Hi Indy,

Yeah, you could.....but I'm still not sure why it's there in the first place. I don't feel any new vibration or hear more noise with the felt out...so why replace it with anything? Sticking rubber in there wouldn't buy you much in terms of corrosion prevention.......think of the rubber floor covering they used to put in pickup trucks before carpet became standard.....rubber doesn't absorb water, but it traps water from evaporating, which allows rust to form. The best thing to do is leave it open and if you get some crud in there just blow it out with compressed air. That felt pad is definitely an odd thing.

Regards,
Bob

I am betting it was to prevent the fender from amplifying transmission noise, being right next to the trans, i will have to see if mine has one stuffed in there

better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it...( YES this includes CUBS! )

Indy,

You're probably right, but it would be a little ironic if they were so worried about trans noise.........but a muffler was optional!!!

Well then why replace it? It became necessary at one time when wet stuff was sitting there. Now it doesn't. Anything you put against it will hold moisture unless it is oiled up.
