    Boot keyhole cover

    Hi

    I'm looking for a temporary keyhole cover to hide my boot keyhole. Not looking to remove/delete completely.

    I saw a rubber grommet on the back of a range rover the other day but can't seem to find anything similar anywhere.

    Any ideas please?

    Thanks

    Im sure my last bmw had some of them rubber plugs under the bonnet betwen the engine bay and cab, like some sort of blank for cables to pass through! They were about the size u mean too mate! See if you have one you can "borrow" for now :thumbup:

    I think halfrauds do some for wiper blanks on hatch backs. They wouldnt be flat, more curved. But a quick rub down and flash over with some spray might do it?
    Like this: 25mm BLANKING GROMMET, Rear Wiper x 5 FREE P & P UK | eBay (picture shows the reverse side of the plug)

    Or something like this: Rear Wiper Blank VW Skoda Seat Audi Golf Leon Polo A4 ETC ETC FREE FITTING KIT | eBay

    Boot keyhole cover

    These blank grommets should work. Thanks @Tim323

    Loads of different ones on eBay. I'm sure I can find one that will fit nicely.

    Good shout.

    How should I attach? Will need to withstand my weekly car wash but at the same time not be permanent.

    Just the boot, unpainted please. I used a LHD passenger's side OEM blank cover on my RHD driver's side for the door locks. On e46, only the driver has a keyhole normally. Passenger is blank.

    Thanks again
