S Type R 2003MY Windscreen Lower Finisher


Recommended Posts

I'm in the process of replacing the windscreen wiper motor and linkage assy due to lots of wear in the right side spindle (RH/D Car). However upon removal of the plastic Lower Windscreen Finisher (or scuttle) I could see that what appears to be "padding" on the underside that has broken up and retained a lot of water which in turn rusts and corrodes everything below it. This water/moisture also messes with electrics and a sensor (on the STR) which reside at the rear of the engine bay.

My question is can the damaged "padding" just be discarded before re-fitting the finisher or does it have some really important function that I am missing.

Would appreciate any advice from those that might have encountered the same issue.
