While inspecting a Suzuki Swift 2008, I noticed a weird sticky surface beside the spare tire well.
Does anybody know what this is?
The grey section in the photo is sound deadening material. It is used to stop the metal panels vibrating. It was glues onto the panel when the car was made. It is also possible to buy self adhesive sheets of this to as more sound deadening.
Why it is sticky to the touch could be on purpose to hold that carpet down, or maybe it has just become sticky as it has become old.
