Hello,

I have a 2008 smart car and the grey seal is fairly deteriorated around the engine cover.

Does anyone know what part number this is or what other seal type materials it could be replaced with? I imagine it has to stand up to heat fairly well.

It lets in a fair bit of noise and sometimes smells.

If you're talking about the rubber seal that outlines the engine lid, you have quite a few options!

You can get some car door insulation material and line it there. I mean, that's pretty much all the OE stuff was anyway. And since the rubber seal sits on the outside of the engine bay, there isn't much heat it has to deal with.

If you're talking about the fabric-type stuff lining the inside of the lid, get some Dynamat...In fact, get some Dynamat anyway so you can quiet it up!!! :)
