Just had to call Steven Eagell as I hadn't heard anything. They are waiting on a new part to come in and it will be changed. 

You've has a result then what area are you in?

@nikndel Ops I thought I replied to this. I went to Steven eagell in St Albans, getting new part delivered and fitted at Steven eagell Watford. 

Sorry you most probably did it's just I don't have a high opinion of Toyota dealerships when it comes to ownership of this car

If any one is interested the metal strip, rubber, clips, are £33.56 from toyota, just replace them it a lot easier than stripping it down and repainting it.

Interesting read. Do you happen to know the part numbers? 

Are the new parts better finished to avoid corrosion in the future? 

Thanks.

Ok, my GT86 is only 8 mth old, but the rubber strip under the bonnet already feeld a bit loose when the hood is opened.

No wonder its prone to rust.

Looks like acf50 is enough to prevent it, or do I need the strip to be replaced as well?

Will get a can of acf50 for now, but if the strip keep getting looser will ask Toyota to replace it anyway.
Thanks for the heads up what to look for, btw.

Sorry, reviving this

Does anyone have a part number or link to replacement seal?

I put some acf50 and current one just peels off leaving gap when i close the bonnet. Thinking I should either superglue it back to metal or replace altogether.

May need to call Toyota to ask. Its disappointing considering the car in not even 1y old... and my right pillar trim is coming off as well, more glue? .

@VAD17 I don't think it had a part number on the one Toyota put in, I can check. But I think it's just a bit of plastic. 

Get in touch with Toyota, they will replace it for free; saves having to use your acf50.

It seems every car has their little flaws when it comes to rust/faults. I sell a product called hydrate 80 from bilt hamber for converting rust and protecting further, also dynax UC which is a clear spray wax for stopping corrosion and protecting, check out the website for more info.

I have already sprayed it wirh acf50 (nice and oily), but the strip itself just gets looser (not sure if its visible on the photo, may be will take another tomorrow with open bonnet).

Will call Toyota, luckily there is a dealership less than 2 miles away.

Smth to do for the weekend...5bd82fc0f12209f211305396da3b9773.jpg
