I think the most effective you can do it is do it from the Engine side... because I have done it to my friends car... but is really limited place for you to stick on the Sound proof material... especially the cooling coil side... and... the effect is not that much.... to dismental the dashboard take alot of work.... think twice..!! if you want to go quite.... spray some foam in the windscreen pillar...

bitumen pad won't help much in supressing noise. They are not invented as sound deadening material in the first place. however, its kinda popular as its easily available and cheap.

If you want to block the sound in to the CAbin then you need to stick the whole fire wall la... but the cooling coil is attatched to the fire wall mah.... unless you want to refill the guess again...else please do not touch it la... so that part you cannot stick la... also it cover quite huge part ma.... so not that perfect la..

The car in the photo was a kelisa i guess.
Me did my soudfroof also. but only on front floor til half of the firewall.
Tried to disamble the dash but stopped it halfway after realised it was not a simple job!:banghead:
