I thought the beetle part was contained completely within the trunk, 
so it does not have the integral sealing grommet to prevent water 
from washing into the trunk space and rusting things out.  In fact, I 
thought the corresponding beetle part was just a piece of hose 
instead of a molded rubber part.
