Would anyone happen to have one (or two as a mate is also after one) of these


The plug goes in the inspection hole for the flywheel on a type 4 - a hole that is of no use unless you have an auto box apparently.

not got one but thinking the holes was used for a timing mark on the flywheel and as part of the basic diagnostics system on some models. A rubber blanking grommet will probably be easier to find

I would normally Snoopy but the thickness isn't constant so I was hoping to find an original that clips in.

I used a big rubber bung on mine of the correct diameter and cut it down to shape the hole

It'd be good to get an original and get 3D printed copies made though
