Any ideas on if these foam “blocks” are supposed to be there? The foam is under the plastic cover on each side of the engine block (highlighted in yellow).

One side the block is fine. The other side about half the block looks like it has been chewed through. I vacuumed up the pieces that were left behind.

The car is new. I’ve seen other posts about rodents but wasn’t sure if these were “delivery” items as I’m still finding parts of my car covered in the original plastic protection.

If the block is supposed to be there, any idea the part to describe to the service manager?

That said, a little disappointed this wasn’t identified/seen when doing the first oil change last week but I assume the tech didn’t have to lift up the plastic cover.

Thanks for the thoughts.

They stay in place although they're not required. Rodents chewed up mine on an Equus sedan, I removed it and never replaced it.
I believe they're there to provide sound deadening.
