boot lid grommet part number

On later MGFs there were 4 grommets installed in holes in the boot lid 'frame' to stop water ingress to the boot. What is the part number of these grommets? I would like to add them to my N-reg F.

Just checked my Rimmer Bros parts catalogue - it doesn't show any rubber grommets?

Are you sure they were not just added by someone to cover some holes drilled in error?

Rimmer Bros. Page

MGF and MG TF Plugs and Grommets at www.rimmerbros.co.uk


follow this link and you will see all grommets etc.
you can then figure out what the part is that you are looking for.
Hope this helps.

Just so happen to have access to 4 I took out of a TF boot lid which someone I know was scrapping for my F. Unfortunately, there are no part numbers on any of them.

However; I have taken some pics of what they look like which are below. As long as you get some blanking grommets the size of the holes (20mm I think) you should be ok.


30mm outer diameter



25mm inner diameter (I think)

That's very interesting dert.

Just went and check my '95 F and sure enough there are 4 Off, 2 per side, dia. 20 mm holes in the reinforcing skin of the boot lid. I had never noticed those before.

I am a little uneasy at the prospect of filling those up though as they appear to allow water to drain away if becoming trapped inside the 'skin channels'. (As best I can see/judge, the outer two holes would drain down the side of the boot seal, down the back of the car. While the inner two holes would appear to let water drain into the engine bay from above.

Its very interesting to learn that these might have been fitted to the TF as standard though.
Can anyone verify this, or have previous owners just preferred the look of a filled hole over a seemingly useless hole?

As I said above, I cant see anything in the Rimmer parts catalogue for either the F or the TF.

It's not just the TF's they are fitted to, My 1999 models have them fitted as well. looks like it was just the early ones they were not fitted to as my 1996 F's haven't got them either.

Took some pics of boot lids,

the first two pics are both 1999 models (Anthracite and Mulberry), the third pic is my early 2003 TF which still has the same grommets as the F. The forth pic which is a late 2003 TF still has grommets but a different style....which until today I'd not noticed the difference.

Mmmm, strange one that.

Nice boot lid photos though lol

Just a thought, could it coincide with the addition of the high level brake light?

May well be a possibility

What about this one: Plug-blanking - Genuine MG Rover at www.rimmerbros.co.uk

Since Rimmers have it on stock you can phone them and ask to measure a diameter for you in acordance to dert's measures.
