Insulation is used as a sound-deadener to reduce exterior road and powertrain noises from the interior of the vehicle. Mastic insulators are also used as insulation. Insulation is installed:

  • under the roof.
  • above and below the instrument panel.
  • at the cowl side panels.
  • over the front and rear floorpans.
  • inside the B-, C- and D-pillar sections.
  • on the wheelhouse/quarter panel.
  • behind the rear quarter trim panel.

Other forms of insulation include:

  • front tunnel stiffening pad.
  • dash panel stiffener.
  • rear wheelhouse mastic pads.

It has heat-bonded mastic deadeners for improved NVH characteristics.

It also has sound dampeners located inside the D-pillar and plug holes in the inner rear quarter.
