Same bushing for the V8 is 811 907 423. You can get that part from any
dealer (although some, like my local dealer, have to order it. Took a
couple weeks here). If the plastic grommet is damaged, I'd disconnect
that rod from the accelerator cable end (swivel pops off if you pry gently
with something like a 10 mm open end wrench) because it can hang up there
and keep the accelerator cable from releasing.
