Hello.
I've replaced my HKS air intake to an A'Pexi power intake, and the previous owner had used silicone to attach the intake air temp sensor to the pipe.

I'd like to find a replacement grommet so that it can be properly secured into my intake pipe.

I've found toyodoi's section, but do not know which of these is the parts #.

Any help would be great.
Thanks!

Looking through TOYODIY and my catalog I don't see a grommet listed for that sensor. The same part is used on some US cars so I looked at that catalog and still didnt see a gromet listed. If there is one it has to be part of the air box or come with the sensor. Looking at other pictures of the sensor online it looks like it just snaps into the air box.

The instructions for the installation of my A'Pexi Power Intake specific to the ST205 shows a grommet, which is why I'm wondering about the piece itself, which was not included in the kit. I'll try removing the silicone and see whether it just snaps in. Thanks for the insight Tracy!

Or you can mount it somewhere near the intake. The temp will be the same inside the pipe as right next to the filter. But if you want it like factory in the pipe that's understandable.

Just a quick update. I went out and bought a pack of various size wire grommets, and the 5/8" size one worked for me. I had to squeeze and contort the grommet to fit into the intake, and the sensor slid in nice and tight afterwords.
