Hi
I have my passenger seat out for a tidy up and cleaning of the runners and checking the floor and tidying things up makes sense as the seat's out.
There is what appears to be a hole made by the factory but its missing the seal. There may also be a second one close by, but that is sealed.
Does anyone know why the hole is part of the design and whether there was a metal bung in there or a rubber grommet originally?

Anyone else filled this hole and what solution did you come up with?
Cheers

The large and small holes have been there on all the beta floors I've seen. The larger one is blanked by a steel bung, the smaller one by a rubber one. There's similar in the rear floor.

As to what they were for I don't know but I've put them back in on mine when replacing the floor!

Cheers Stuart.
Do you know what size rubber bumf it is? Did you just use a blind grommet?

I don't know what size the small ones were exactly as I redid them with the nearest size tank cutter I had to hand (20mm) but yes a blind rubber grommet and plenty of seam sealer.

Many thanks Stuart
I think they may well be 20 mm.
