Found the seal, is right at the edge of the hood and looks like it is sealing air/rain from flowing over the top of the headlight.
Seems odd: the seal is across the edge of the headlight and it appears to want to pull intake air from the slots on top of the grille and over the radiator support cover to the intake. This makes sense however there is a foam barrier strip that will block most of the flow (see picture). The path in the grille, out slots on top, and around to the intake should keep rain/snow/birds out of the intake but the barrier makes little sense other than to block the air flow. Wonder why (sell CAIs ?)
Need to monitor the Intake Air Temp using my OBD scanner with the barrier in place and with it removed. Might be interesting.
One of these is a diesel.
