I got a wire through the firewall wiring rubber thing but in the process the plastic retainer ring separated and fell to the ground. I recovered both pieces and they are fine. No damage there. But the issue now is how the thing goes in. I have tried a few things but I can’t get the rubber in. So now I’m desperate. If someone can take a picture from the engine bay side I can see how the ring and gasket thing should fit. Any help would be amazing.

I found an online diagram that shows the way for the plastic thing to go. I tried putting the rubber around the ring but I just can’t get it. I think once the rubber is around it I can just press the whole thing in and it will be done.
I want to do this myself but I’m considering going to my local car audio place to see if they can do it. I would guess they’ve run up against this kind of thing before. They might have the patience and know how that I don’t.

Sorry caught up in the moment and failed on that part. I’ll work on a pic to post after dinner. Maybe someone has an idea to get the rubber on the plastic ring. I’m open to suggestions.

I added some pictures. This is all on driver side. Far left behind the OBD port. You can see in the second picture I have the ring put back together but I can’t get that lip seated inside the rubber. Seems when I get a corner done and move to the next it comes out.open to suggestions on how To get this done.

Look inside the rubber, I think it is keyed so it only goes in one way.

Yes definitely keyed.You can reach inside the rubber and feel it. Very difficult to line up correctly because of the angles under the dash.
