You don't mean the headlight back rubber covers, do you? They are grey, and in the right situation. The things you remove to change bulbs.
No mate,i know where they are and what they do. :y The parts i mean are attached to the rad  :y.I will try to get a pic up but bear with me as i have never done it.Dean.

Sorry DG you are correct.The left hand one has come away from the rad at the top and that is what is making the noise.I have put some silicone adhesive on the top edge rubber,to fix it back to the rad.It seams ok for now no noise, but how are they normally fixed in place.Dean.BTW Thanks for the pic Terry.

They clip into a rubber grommet on the slam panel. Simply push the top towards the number plate until it pops into place...

Terry's pic doesn't show the shaped spring clip that attaches to the rectangular holes in the bracket and made the marks on the rubber block. The radiator assembly is a pretty tight fit, and the clips don't really do much. Gluing the rubber in place isn't something I would find necessary if the clips were missing.

The bit you glued to the radiator CLIPS to the metal panel that the bonnet latches to by way if a plastic ball and rubber grommet. Not sure that I can simplify it any further... :-\

But here goes...

Lower two pins sit on the lower cross member top single pin is the one that clips into the slam panel.
