Hi, I'm looking for one of these grommets in good condition. Have gone to MB Classics in california but they say NLA. Has anyone got one in good condition they want to sell plse? Photos attached of grommet without piece that fitis into the boot floor, and a general shot of the boot showing cabin air hose hanging loose.(shot at right angles sorry)

This part looks like a good candidate for 3D printing if NLA. Presumably it requires to be slightly flexible so as to seal, rather than rigid.

Perhaps look up some of the 3D threads, some of the 3D enthusiasts might be willing to help?

Hi there, you are right, the problem is finding someone with a 3D printer round auckland to do it.

Postage from Oz for a part like that wouldn't be too expensive I would think.
