A rat has been eating at my hood liner and made a nest in the bed of my truck. Does anyone know if there is any possibility of there being any asbestos in the hood liner? I know that they used asbestos on the older vehicles. Does anyone know the year they discontinued using asbestos in the hood liner? Did they discontunue using asbestos?

Surely some one must know the answer to my question.

If no one has the answer to this, do you know where I can find out?

I highly doubt they used asbestos in the hood insulation pad...when I was a freshman in high school, they were completely gutting the building getting rid of asbestos, and that was in 98. I dont think asbestos has been used much in the last, what, 20 years or so? Atleast 15...

I think it's production was outlawed in 78 or so... but I could be wrong. I am positive it was before 2000

I had a pet mouse in my liner too. Nothing a snap trap and a little cheese mounted on the valve cover overnight couldn't take care of. The guts of mine look like ground up blue jeans and blankets so I doubt too that asbestos is in the mix.

Asbestos

No way auto manufactures are using asbestos in there hood liners, or anywhere else. That is a known cancer causing product.
Just pull out your hood liner. New trucks don't even have em (Im told).:thumbsup:

:agree2:

It's been decades since asbestos was used.

The hood liner was phased out in 2001.5 - dmc had to find a way to pay for the rear disk brakes... so out went the hood liner, the lighted key ring, the rear cup holder...
