Does anyone know where I can source a hood insulation pad for a 300TE, in the UK.
I have seen some in the States but not in Europe.
Thanks

Hi,
Welcome to the forum.
Have you tried MB? As they still stock many many parts for the older vehicles, and i have found for similar parts very cheap for 202.
Failling that you could try the classic car magazines classified's as I have seen companies specialising in sound proofing for older vehicles, but i think MB will be the cheapest and best option.

Do you mean Mercedes Benz? Sorry for ignorance.
I tried Merc-man, but he is in the process of moving.

Yes Mercedes Benz main dealer, IIRC the under bonnet insulation on a W124 is bonded to the underside of the bonnet, it would never come of in one piece thats why I never mentioned a second hand source.
Is yours just missing? if so you will probably see the remains of the bonding agent on the inside of the bonnet.

anyone know how much difference it makes to the sound inside the car.

If not much I would be inclined to leave it off which will lighten the car and give more mpg.

Hard question, the sound deadening always worked on cars that did not have any,,there are better ones on the after market. more dense than the MB ones
