When you break them down, cars actually have quite a large number of rubber products associated with them. There are the door and boot seals for a start, as well as seals for all the windows. Open up the bonnet or look underneath your car, and you’ll also see several rubber bungs and grommets.
Rubber is an important material in cars because it tightly seals areas and is slow to degrade. Over time, however, even the rubber bungs around your car’s bodywork will begin to show signs of wear and tear.
They may become brittle or porous, even have bits ripped out of them. When this happens, it’s important to replace the rubber bungs – waiting too long can mean leaks get into the mechanical workings of your vehicle and cause much bigger issues.
Where Are Rubber Bungs Used in Cars?
Bungs for the water pipe, the cylinder plug head and other areas of the car are there to stop leaks and to prevent outside elements from getting in. Rubber is the perfect product for this kind of thing as it can withstand the higher levels of heat that an engine will produce while still being durable and practical.
You’ll also find a lot of grommets in your car. These are smaller pieces of rubber that are used to protect things like wiring, holding circuits in place and preventing water from getting in at the same time.
There are so many areas where rubber bungs are used in a car that it can be difficult to check they’re all functioning properly. This normally happens when your car has an MOT and service where the engine and underside can be thoroughly checked.
