    De-WIper mk4 astra. What size grommit?

    Hi guys. Searched the Internet and can't find anything.

    What size grommit do I need to cover up the hole from where I have removed The rear wiper motor and blade?

    I have a feeling it's 30mm?

    Cheers, LLoyd.

    why not just take it off, measure the hole, then go out and buy the gromit to fit? do it on a nice day like today and you've no need to worry about a little water getting in, as it's not raining!

    I've taken it off and the hole measures 30mm but I've rang all the places that might sell grommits around my area and they say it's a huge size and there biggest is 25mm :/

    32mm rubber grommet on ebay so I doubt it'd be that difficult to find. could always sand the hole to fit this grommet...

    there a nut holds wiper arm on, take that off and prise the wiper arm off, then take the trim off the inside of the bootlid and the wiper motor is held on with bolts, it easy enough to do so give it a bash
