Should there be a cover here?

Post by vitoman58 » Wed May 08, 2019 6:05 pm

Getting into car yesterday and noticed a hole where door hinges are as per photos. Checked and the same on passenger side.

Is this correct or should these openings be covered?

Thanks.

Mine are just like yours. I too wonder why no bung, perhaps JLR think the space behind should breathe.

Mine is also the same and I often think about putting a blank rubber grommet in each one but haven't got around to it yet.
