Thank you Corey! Very happy with these. I was able to replace all three without removing the seat or the panel.

If you’re still making the grommets, I’d Love to put an order in for a set of three for my 2003 x10.
I sent you a PM as well.

I’m looking for one of the angled grommet that Corey no longer makes.

If anyone has one they wound up not using, please let me know.

After 2 years I finally installed mine. They are perfect. Great fix!

Just installed mine today . . . after getting them a year ago. Wasn't too hard -- here's what I did.

- Remove Captains seat. A 5-minute job -- four bolts requiring 1/2" socket and 1/4" Allen wrench
- Lift up the dash panel. A 1-minute job -- pop the 3 push pins next to the windshield and remove the two screws at the bottom beside the steering column. Doing this allows the side panel to slide out away from the hull.
- Remove the screw at the center bottom of the side panel.
- Remove the hidden Nylock nut up under the rear of the side panel.
- Remove the three Torx bolts at the top of the side panel. (T37 bit for the bolts and 7/16" wrench for the nuts)

- Start with top center bolt -- it's the hardest. Insert the new grommet and bolt.
- Lying under the helm I could just reach up and touch the back of the bolt with my left fingers.
- Place SS fender washer over bolt.
- Stick the Nylock nut to my duck-taped finger, reach up, and hold it to the stud while I reach around with my right arm and turn the bolt using a ratcheting stubby screwdriver until the nut catches.
- Then reach up with the 7/16" wrench to hold the nut and tighten the bolt.
- Front and rear grommets/bolts are easy
- Reinstall everything else
- Grab a brew, sit back and admire the finished work

Pic 3: a trick I learned from an old mechanic dude when you are working blind and can barely reach a bolt
