Range Hood Cover Rattle

We have a 2011 Sunseeker 2300. Above the stove is a range hood and fan that blows air outside. On the outside, under the protective cover, is a metal plate held loosely over the opening leading to the range hood. This cover rattles continuously when traveling.
Why is this cover there? If it is to keep bugs out, a screen would have been better. If it is to keep cold out, some soft material should line the inside edge to prevent metal-on-metal contact.
Any thoughts?

By some adhesive foam to line the inside of cover.
but there should be locking tabs on it to keep it closed at both lower corners of flap.

There are two locking tabs on the lower corners which keep the flap from falling out, but they cannot be tightened enough to keep the flap from vibrating. I still wonder why the flap is there - keep out bugs, cold, or some other reason. The design should be improved.

keep out bugs yes keep cold out yes .

as I stated before open the cover then apply thin foam with adhesive on the inside of the flap then shut and turn tabs . it should be tighter then

my cover is plastic and fits tight .

I am sure that you have 2 little tabs that keeps the cover from opening while travelling. A bit similar to some windows screens
