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.
