The one I have is oblong, and does not have a grab point on it.

When I pushed out the rubber plug from the inside, it got lost somewhere - maybe inside a skid plate, on the transmission - either way, it's MIA and I need a replacement, but the part number can't be found.

I first went online to check the Mopar parts site and thought I had it narrowed down to two numbers, keeping in mind that almost no description is attached to any of them, except maybe the benign "rubber plug", so the ID isn't easy. I tried P/N
68197674AA and 5116448AC and went to the dealer parts department, explained that they should verify my numbers, which they did, so I ordered both. When I picked them up today, they were not the right parts.

An experienced parts man came out and looked at the vehicle and went inside to the drawings and could not find the exact plug. I've worked extensively with assembly drawings and understand that if something isn't on a parts list, it doesn't go into a vehicle, so how can this be?

The plug is shown in the Auxlight 22" light bar installation on Youtube by a guy called "carguy11" and he has the same plug as I do (did). Is there anyone out there that has the correct part number for that plug? I appreciate any info on this because I have a temporary plug in there to keep weather out, but it is far from ideal. Thanks in advance. Note: the interior hole had a black plastic patch with adhesive.

If you are unable to find a plug, you can build a seal up with silicone sealant ...

i THINK i found the one you're looking at, although it's hard to tell because chrysler's dash schematic shows it with all components removed. but i'm pretty sure what you need is plug #2, which is part number 68197674AA, described as "PLUG, Rubber, 16.3X22.4MM"



EDIT: I just read your post and saw that this is not the correct plug, since you already tried it. is one of the grommets pointed at in the picture above?

No, this does not seem to be the drawing. I actually reached out to Jeep Customer Care and forwarded the photo from the link that Mark_ provided so we'll see what they come up with. Someone has to know.

I did because of the need to keep that as dry as possible. Hopefully, it will not be observed by anyone because my already shaky reputation will take a lethal hit.

Looking for anything that could help, I tried Jeep Customer assistance and after several back and forth emails, I have this juicy tidbit:

#########

Thank you for replying to the Jeep Customer Assistance Center.

Unfortunately pictures do not come through. Without knowing what the
part name is we cannot assist in locating the part number. The best
thing to do is talking to the service department at a dealership in
hopes they will know which part you are looking for. We are not
technically trained and rely on our dealerships for questions like
these. I am sorry I cannot assist you further.

Thank you again for your email. Should you require additional
assistance, or have any new information to provide, please reply to this
email message or call 1-877-I-AM-JEEP

##########

They can't receive pictures and I had already explained that the local dealership could not help me. Their reply basically reads like: "go away".
