300e hood shroud separation

the insulated pad under the hood is falling off and flops over the engine when i open the hood...does it serve a vital function? im thinking of just removing it...does it preserve the hood finish somehow? many cars lack such a pad

It keeps the car quieter and the hood cooler in the summers. There are a ton of postings, but this one is good:
