I haven't checked how old these posts are - but while on the search to check if my AMD Mobility Graphics card can have its heat exchange paste renewed, I came across this thread.
It sounds like you guys are talking about some type of "heat shield"
They are simply there to reflect heat away from the case of the laptop to prevent it from being transferred directly onto your lap...or whatever its sitting on. To replace this heat shield, you will need to buy double sided sponge tape (with the correct thickness), and some aluminium foil. Cut the strips to the desired size and shape, then stick them to the clean surface where you removed the old shield. Once they are in place, remove the top side wax paper to expose the sticky surface, then carefully apply the dull side of the aluminium foil (cut to a rough size), and trim off the excess with a razor blade or something.

Ah I know what you mean. I just did a cooling system service for the first time yesterday, when I came across the silicone pad. Mine was slightly browned in the middle, so i added a bit of thermal paste over the top (just incase the pad isn't living upto its reputation). Both GPU and CPU temperatures are now showing a remarkable decrease of temperature - upto 20 degrees improvement even under load! If you want me to make a tutorial, somebody just has to say the word. P.s if you do a cooling system service, make sure you check the cooling fins/radiator for blockages - mine was about 30% blocked and is about 2 years old.
