      Has anyone used stuff like Dynamat Xtreme to help the issue?
      Use this instead, 3M 08300. Color is not clear but tan which doesn't matter, its behind the hood blanket, you don't see it. Much of the hood under there is primer color anyway where you glue. I think the factory is gluing these hoods before the primer has fully dried, or a chemical miss match, causing the joint to just lets go. The TSB shows specific locations they want glued, but there are many more location on the hood where the sealer separated. I use one 10 oz tube to do both of mine applying at as many spots I could get to. Hood's have been rock solid.

      TSB 17-083r2 covers 2017 thru 2019, and most likely will get another update to include the 2020.

      Hi,

      Can you please tell me what 3M sealant you used? My hood shakes like it's going to fly off.

      Thank you
      I used the 10 oz cartridge which is tan in color. No big deal, the blanket hides everything. Did my RL and Pilot 4 years ago, still rock solid. The 5 oz tube in clear, in my opinion would not be enough to do it right. You will find there are more glue spots on the hood that broke free then what is listed in the TSB.

      Hey @MtMan, did you do any prep before you applied the sealant? I was looking on the 3M website at the direction for application and they say to 'lightly scuff' the painted surface and then clean to remove surface contaminants. It looks to me like it will be very dificult to get into that area to scuff and clean... wondering if it is necessary. Obviously it looks like your repair is holding up well (4+ years) so I'm just curious what you did as far as scuffing and cleaning. I only want to do this repair once, so any additional guidance you can give me would be appreciated. Thanks!
