Anyone know if there is supposed to be a grommet or some other fastener on the drivers side (RHD) firewall?

Thanks for any information.

Regards,

Carl.

My red 280 has one.

Tomorrow I'll have a closer look to see if it can be removed.  On my 350 it's snapped and remnants left behind in the firewall.  I've got a feeling it might be a single use thing unless it can be pushed back through the firewall.  I'll let you know tomorrow after I've sprayed all the redbacks. :o

The clip's about 27mm in diameter and slightly domed.

Thanks Oscar!  I knew you'd know!

I can't find anything on the EPC either, I showed the pic to my long suffering parts guy in Melbourne and he couldn't find anything about it either. 

Regards,

Carl.

i think youll be hard pressed to identify the part in the epc as all of the diagrams are of the default version, ie, left hand drive.

right hand drive is much less popular and the part will be there but be a pain in the arse to find, if its even in the diagrams you expect it to be will be a miracle alone....

probably be in vehicle electrical or something stupid like that.

I couldn't get at it Carl sorry.  If it pokes through the firewall it exits right under the brake booster and I wont be taking that off any time soon sorry.

In the meantime, in the unlikely event I'm competeing in a concours against you and even further unlikely, if the competition is close and your only beating my by a point or two, I'll be sure to mention to the judges to check to see if this grommet is on your car  :D  ;)

Hey Carl.  Try this part number for your plug you are missing.  000-997-48-86.  It is in group 68, third frame, callout number 183.  It looks like a screw, but in my years of experience that doesn't mean anything.  In fact, EPC calls it a plug, and that it holds insulation to firewall.  Maybe this will help.  :-)  AARON
