    Where`s this grommet ?

    I have a 1998 MK4 1.6, is there a grommet on the drivers side, behind where the small compartment/fuse box is? I quickly took the comp box out this morning but couldn`t see one. Is there one deffo there? or should I start drilling?

    Cheers.

    Although I always drill I have looked on 3 different model's of MK4 astra's and have always found the grommet.

    It's tucked right behind the break servo, it's a bit difficult to see but it's there as iv'e run wires through it.


    Good luck
