plastic grommits

Post by shaunthesheep » 25 Sep 2002, 02:07

hi all,
on the rear trailing arm of the xantia, on the top, close to the rear wheel bearing, there is a plastic grommit. protecting a hole, hole must be a drain hole, there is also one on the underside, but no grommit, does anyone know where i can get two more grommits, other than main dealer, as have had the parts on order for over a week & they don't know when they will be getting them in, plus i have to buy a pack of 20. what am i going to do with 20, i only need 2.

Not wanting to state the obvious, but have you tried your local friendly(?) scrap yard? Look for a crash specialist as they'll have the newer cars like the Xantias, Otherwise check through Autotrader in the Breaking section, to be fair they'll probably laugh at you for wanting them but you can get as many as you want for peanuts!

did try all the ones in local area, but to no ava. so had to wait for main dealer to pull finger out of a#@e!!, they arivved yesterday pk20, but they onle cost me £1.20, so it was'nt that bad.
thanks anyone for the idea.
