About Windscreen Scuttle Panels
The MINI windscreen scuttle panel is a panel which sits between the windscreen and bonnet, where the windscreen wipers are mounted. The scuttle panel serves to protect the components housed beneath while providing a streamlined appearance.
The wiper motor and linkage mechanism is located beneath the bonnet and is generally concealed by the scuttle panel. The wiper arms are normally bolted or attached to the linkage on studs or splines that protrude through the scuttle panel. The scuttle panel can also conceal other components such as the pollen filter in some cars. The scuttle panel prevents unwanted items of debris, such as mud, leaves and sticks from reaching the engine compartment and some scuttle panels house air vents which help to ventilate the engine compartment. The scuttle panel also serves to drain the excess water from the windscreen.
The windscreen scuttle panel is essentially a large, functional piece of trim that's contoured to line the foot of the windscreen, providing a sleek and tidy appearance to the exterior of the car. The scuttle panel is often made of plastic but chrome is a popular choice for some car manufacturers.
Apart from affecting the cosmetic appearance of the car, a broken windscreen scuttle panel, if badly damaged, could let water into the car and other unwanted debris could find it's way into the engine compartment. Replacing this part with the MINI scuttle panel will ensure you get the right part that's completely compatible with the make and model of your vehicle.
