91 300TE Hose Grommet?

Hello. Apologies for registering to quickly ask a question but I have called Mercedes dealers and researched and still cannot find a part that broke yesterday leaving me stranded. I have a photo to attach that will show 3 hoses that were connected but the grommet broke into pieces and coolant spewed all over the engine and car was overheating.

One hose leads to the Radiator Expansion Tank. This is up at top right engine near firewall (driver side). I need to reconnect these hoses and get my car moved asap. A simple looking black plastic part has taken me hours to locate.

Any help? Thanks for your time.

Take measurements of the inside diameters, there appear to be at least two different sizes involved, and go to any local parts shop for a generic replacement.

You haven't completed your profile, so I don't know you're located--very helpful information. Grommet isn't the word, in US-English, that comes to mind for what you're looking for. It looks like a coupling to me, generically speaking.

Completing your profile--year, model, location--and asking future questions in the sub-forum appropriate for your year and model will likely get you the best help.
