Cruising the u-pull-it this weekend, there was a thrashed on on 5k where
the grommet was replaced by some teflon tape tightly wrapped around the top

water hose.  And many more abominations....  :-)

You can make a replacement grommet yourself with a suitably sized metal
washer and some hi-temp epoxy.
