    Help IDing Rubber Hood Bumpers 1988-91

    I have just realized I am missing the two rubber bumpers that fit into holes on the right and left corners at the rear of the hood. About a month ago, I did replace the bumper that fits into the center hole (photo below).

    I had a spare one, so yesterday I tried to see whether it could work as one of the corner bumpers (in other words, "Are all three identical?") But the spare center bumper's base would not fit into the corner holes -- which leads me to think the corner bumpers must be different -- or at least use a different base.

    Could someone with an 1988-91 Eldo or Seville please take a look and let me know?

    Thanks!

    MAYBE a parts list in www.gmpartsgiant.com

    ---or comparison bumpers on the Help! racks at parts stores.

    Yeah thanks I have tried parts lists and diagrams, but these bumpers do not seem to be listed individually. I'm going to try to be sure I have the right part, because my hood is not fitting as well as it should and I don't want to foul up the geometrics. I've written to my favorite junkyard to see what they say...

    No, I have not used them but looks good -- I found Cadillac King a number of years ago and they have always been good.

    OK to close this thread, I must admit I was wrong about the hood bumpers. The hoods on these cars used a three-point support system: the two adjustable bumper bolts on each front corner, and the single rubber piece as shown in the photo in the center at the rear of the hood. I was led astray by an eBay photo I (wrongly) thought showed similar bumpers at the rear corners. There are openings there, yes -- but not for anything.

    Sorry for the confusion!
