Se6a rear wiper rubber mount

Safely stored the rubber mount that fits over the rear wiper spindle, got the metal shroud and nut but not the “grommet”. I seem to recall it was almost unobtainium when I bought it from gw’s But before I make a heap of calls does anyone know if it is an easily sourced item please.
