Rubber seal recall

I just got a letter about the recall. As I understood it makes sense if you open your hood (bonnet) regularly, otherwise there is no risk. Since I do not open the hood ever, I consider I can live without visiting a dealer until some other service or repair will be required. Any other opinions?

Its no big deal.. Just four little clips installed under the hood seal on the left side of the partition wall. If you dont ever open your hood youre fine till your next service. Even if you do open your hood just be sure the hood seal is seated nice before ya close it. That said, If ya stop by your dealer just to take care of the recall it takes no time at all. And may even be able to get done right in the drive through.

I noticed a lot of road saltand dirt in my engine bay primarily on the left(passanger side). I'm wondering if it is related and if it will this alleviate this issue?
