I donít. saw this question on another forum about a year back with no answer.

from the ETK photo it looks like #5 (or 23) so would need to see the mm diameter given.
just to confirm, is the top plug intact on the left side fender and is it same part as the bottom or different shape? if so the ETK will say how many of a part the car takes for the diagram and should help figure it out too.

I tried ordering them from the dealer but the ones that showed up didn't fit. Would like to know myself too. One disappeared after a visit to Krown made something out of some rubber plumbing washers and a bolt and for now.

Always wondered why cars have these random plugs...? Is it when they dip the car at the factory?

Go to www.realoem.com and enter the last 7 characters of the carís vehicle identification number. Hit enter and bookmark the page. Scroll down to vehicle trim. Then scroll down to the bottom to find all of the rubber plugs.
