    SmartSelect_20190815-113211_eBay.jpg Please see picture. The 4 hole grommet. This goes in the blower housing. 67 skylark/gs.

    Anyone have a serviceable used one to sell?

    Thanks

    Is it a grommet (pass through) or does it have pins/receptacle terminations on the other side?

    I am not sure. I don't have an example in hand to refer to.

    The diagram helps. I think it is much larger than I first thought. Originally, I thought a "mini DIN" connector might be about the right size, but it looks to be quite a bit larger.

    It may take some effort, but one could be made from a proper sized rubber stopper used in "science labs", using successive drill bits and drilling the holes, then carefully shaving the outside of the stopper to narrow the center. (Or a really dense, black, rubberized, closed cell foam)

    I have done similar things. A very sharp (and several) razor blades, cut, fit, cut some more until you get it.

    Unlikely that you will find anything reproduced, nor of the same OD and having the correct hole size, but patience and determination, you can fashion about anything.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for your suggestions. Here's hoping I can find a used original! Otherwise I will try your stopper idea.

    Several folks are in the business of parting cars and supplying parts. Hope one has what you need. :)
