Default Boot seal part codes

Hi does any of you have the part codes for the 2 boot grommets? mine have long been gone and I can't find them on www.oemepc.com as the part diagram shows it as an 'non orderable part.'

Do any other VAG parts/part number can fit those 2 holes?

Lots of us have had issues with these grommets perishing over time, and as you've found, you can't get them. Part of the problem is that they are moulded onto the cables somehow.

For a possible solution to your problem, check out the following thread, with the magic word being Sugru:

Thanks for this, If i won't find anything else ill resort to it.

In the mean time i took a chance and bought the below, it has the same diameter hole as A8 both for the body panel and the line that goes through it. I'll try it and report back

Now THAT looks VERY interesting, where did you get it and what's the part reference?
