    Hi, can someone please assist with the part number for the black grommet that stops [and is fitted to] the fuel cover [the body part] from hitting the stop over the fuel cap? Sorry, I don't know how to describe it well and I have been looking in the parts manuals online without success.

    The guy that detailed the car lost it when he was cleaning out the petrol filler area [or it was really perished and just crumbled away]. Thanks.
