Can anyone tell me the parts number for the grommet rubber tube that connects from the passenger side body to the hatch door and holds the wiper fluid hose and wires. It looks similar to the drivers side tube but is circular at the end, not oval. This pic is the driver side oval tube and the end (what's left) of the passenger side circular tube for reference. Thanks. I looked around with no luck.

I think that thing is NLA. I ordered two LH side tubes and trimmed the round hole in the frame chord to be oval.

Call Van Cafe and see if they have anything left. I doubt it though, mine started leaking into my hatch when it rained.
The cure for me was to take black RTV and smear it all ove the tube where it had cracked open. Which happened
to be just about everywhere. Once the RTV cured no more leak when it rained or when I washed the Westy.

Good luck and let us know how it turns out?

My solution when faced with this was to fashion/rig a substitute using grommets and clear tubing. I used was what was on hand, the fit was very tight getting everything in there, I used some heat and lube, sort of a pita. But it has worked for about three years now.

If I were to do it again and had time I probably would just get the oval one and trim as needed as suggested already.

Nice that looks good. I found a site that says they have it, but we'll see when it comes time for them to ship it. http://www.vwpartsdepartment.com/
