hood latch grommet source

Post by fairmont50 »

has anyone been able to source the little grommet that goes on the bottom of the hood latch to stop rattles and hood opening problems? I have a '98 s70 with this problem and have not been able to find the grommet without replacing the latches (~$80 each). The grommet slides into the slot in the front of the latch at the bottom of the grove that the hood catch goes into.

You can see it in the center of the picture here:

Thanks,

I think the only option is a junkyard, and probably cheaper to pull the whole part. Having said that, for small items like that runner grommet my PnP's don't even charge you.
