Mystery rubber plug - anyone familiar?

Could use a parts expert on this one: When running a new cable from the engine compartment into the passenger compartment for a front-mounted light bar, I used an existing hole in the car body that allows the cable to enter into the interior directly behind the brake pedal.

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.

Yuck. Trying to find the part now, but hae to get some sleep... I think I have a good pic of the grommet for you, so if you can look at a diagram again maybe it will help ID the bugger : Pillar mount lights

I'll post back if I ever find the part#...

I've actually got the plug itself somewhere. I think it's in my center console, but I don't think it has any part numbers on it.

Mark_,

The parts guy and I may been looking at the wrong drawings, they were the 060 Body Sheet Metal Except Doors drawings and nowhere do I find the p/n 52104862AA. That could be it, actually.

In the carguy11 video for the Auxbeam light bar install, he shows the actual plug that he carves out to run the cable. That's the same plug I'm looking for and could be what you found. Wish there was a drawing of the plug, then I could be certain. Thanks for digging into it.

Is it about 30mm in diameter, with a thumb/forefinger grab on the outside?

Well who knows... and hopefully you can ID it soon.

BTW I posted a link for you in post #2 here, where we see the plug. Here it is again : Pillar mount lights

There are a few good pics of it in that post. And yes there is a grab thing on it. I'm not sure the part# I found is that one though... because I can't find pics for that #.

Extremely interested in this as well. I had the same issue with the plug going MIA. I ended up sealing the hole with a silicone sealant in the meantime to discourage water from coming in.

That is the very same plug and the exact location where it resides. It didn't get there by accident so someone knows the part number. The thing is, who is that person?

I'm sure that if the plug is identified, it will get posted here.
