Hello, Subaru OB Form Members

I'm a new owner of 2017 OB 3.6R Limited. I noticed a foam piece that came from the left grill vent closest to the steering wheel. I'm wanting to know if anyone has come across this themselves and if I should be concerned?

As always thank you, for your time and insight!

Kind regards,

piece of seal on a blend door?

on your car, is there an a/c or defrost vent built onto the door? That seal may be between the dash and the door vent.

I'm in agreement with Texan, that looks like a seal from the inner workings of your HVAC system.

Are you still under warranty? If so, I'd take the car and that piece in and see what they have to say.

You can run your blower and heater through all the different setting to see if you can determine any malfunctions. However, a piece that small will be unlikely.

Good Luck!
