help with part number

Iīve been looking in Real Oem but i canīt find the part number for the rubber grommet in this pic.

Itīs the rubber grommet between the trunk and the body, with the cables for the trunk lid inside it.

Anyone knows the part number?

Thanks

I don't think it's a separate, but as this problem is common, perhaps someone like ECS in the US have a repair kit?

Found this, but after a quick look, seem most people repair it without spending $550!

They make that boot available separately. I got it when I did my loom rebuild. I'll see if I can find it for you...hang on...if not...see my thread with 'elephant trunk' in the title...might have the PN in that. But then, you know, you have the issue of getting all the wires, with connectors, through this loom. At the factory, connectors are added after the wires are slipped through.

When I die, what on earth are you guys going to do? Probably say, "thank god we don't have to hear about his 'comedy' shows anymore, but I do miss his parts' finding skills."

I rebuilt my loom for maybe $20 or so, vs. the $600 the entire harness is listed for...something like that.

OP, if you get into it, I hope that thread I referenced helps you. Lots of inline splices and soldering...don't forget your shrink tubing.

help with part number

Then to change this part I need to cut and splice all the wires? What a potential mess...

See my thread...I spliced in new sections of wire. 14 wires, 2 different gauges, lots of soldering. Mark both ends of the wires after you cut them...and make sure you yank them apart so you don't put a 'breaking' wire into the new loom...cut bad sections out.

See my thread, you'll see what's up. IDK how easy it is to just remove all the connectors and feed wire through...another possibility, but for me, with many failing wires, I just replaced the section going through the loom entirely.
