Replacement for door panel corner grommet

For later Spiders, the grommet in the upper rear corner of the door that the door panel pin goes into is NLA. I tried a bunch of fasteners and found a cheap replacement.

It's a #8 screw size nylon nut. Most auto parts stores have this exact "Body-Tite" product in the fasteners section. Just mount it in a vise and drill out the opening to juuuust the size of the pin on the door panel (I used a 7/32" bit). Seems to work like a charm.
