    Question Questions about OEM foam inside of Kick Panel / Fender

    Hello,

    I have attached a picture of the OEM foam inside of the Kick panel area on a 91 chevy silverado pickup. The foam is grey and unlike anything I have really seen before, it's almost like jute material was mixed with a silicone. Can ayone tell me the correct name for this foam so I can search for it and buy some if I need it ?

    There was some water / wetness in this area that I think was coming from a cowel leak that I fixed. Would there be anything wrong with taking the OEM foam out and sealing the area with some Urethane seam sealer ?

    What is the main reason they use foam instead of seam sealer in this area, is it supposed to seal and deaden sound ? I could spray some more foam over the seam sealer if I can find a suitable spray foam.

    Thanks for your help.
    John

    It was probably used to help lessen noise in those areas. You can use seam sealer or you can use replacement foam if you hear unwanted sound with only seam sealer.
