Diagram for Sound Proofing in Rear of Car

Recommended Posts

So I finally replaced my wireless rearview cam with the wired version run through the car - it simply provides a clearer picture without interferance near wireless networks. In my zest to run the wire from the driver's backup light into the cabin, I was not as mindful as I should have been with removing the soundproofing necessary to reach the grommet. BTW, the grommet is way back there so be aware it takes some effort to get there.

Anyway, that was last weekend and now I am trying to put the soundproofing back to its original state. Does anyone have a diagram of the positiong of the sound proofing in the rear of the car? I have searched the forum and read through several TSBs without success. Thanks in advance -

Jeremy

I've been in that area and it is indeed a strange piece of foam.

There is a large bulk that sandwiches into where the engine harness grommet where you've likely run you wire.

Then a small narrow bit that runs to the larger portion that sits behind the quarter panel.

It's a major pain to get it just right.

I think this is the one you are talking about, #16, but the picture doesn't do a good job of showing how it fits other than the orientation. And the drivers side one pictured is backwards from the one you are working with.

Here is a larger diagram for you, if the previous response is the right area.

Good luck!
