Type pf Glue?

I have a set of M/T aluminum rocker covers and where the PVC goes into the grommet, the grommet has split into two pieces (the part that goes into the rocker cover and the part that fits outside of the cover). Have been unable to locate a similar grommet (about 1" thick by 1 1/2" diameter that has a 5/8" hole in it) and because of that have to rely on gluing it back together; unless someone can tell me where I can get a replacement. I tried contact cement and it doesn't hold (because of the heat, I suppose). Any suggestions as to what type of glue can be used here? The grommets that are used on Chevy rocker covers are too small as the aluminum covers are about 1/4" thick.

Yep, Summit. No type of glue will hold that grommet together in use.

I"Ve tried all types of "rubber" type of glue and they hold for awhile then let go. I guess the hunt is still on for a replacement. Never tried JB weld, only on metal type parts.

I think you will be spinning your wheels trying to glue it... Someone should have a new one,, There was one in it...

Went to my local parts store again and this time browsed through their rack of odds and ends and found the same grommet! It is a Ford replacement for a Ford rocker cover, which I've been told that they have used for a number of years. Go figure.....fitting a M/T rocker cover. Thanks to all the replies.
